Älvsbyn, Jörn

Almost 5 months later I'm repeating my journey to the north, I will be taking the night train to Älvsbyn, then visiting Jörn. 
Christmas decorations at the central station in Stockholm

Rc6 1339
It's not a long time left for the SJ as the operator on the route to the north, from the middle of December the Norwegian Vy will take over the lines to Luleå and Narvik. 
So, I have to use my SJ bonus point for the trip on a night train
I'm taking train 94 which is the first departing in the evening, the other one is departing in a few hours later.
Free toothbrush on the train

I'm waking up when the train is not far from Älvsbyn, the road is blocked ahead by train 9102. 
From my window, I can spot a moose that is trying to climb over the fence.
Train 9102 from Luleå to Borlänge was stuck in an uphill and needed help from a rescue locomotive.
One Rc4 and two Mb locomotives could manage to bring the heavy train up at the end and the road was open.

2,5 hours delayed, the train is finally continuing to Älvsbyn
