Avesta, Krylbo, Karbenning, Sala

For a few days, I'm in Avesta - which is in the south part of the Dalarna region. Nearby Krylbo station is one of the busiest in Sweden when it comes to freight trains.
Avesta ironworks old location, today a place for art and culture
Dalälven river
Dalabanan railway runs through Avesta, but the trains do not stop here
Instead, I'm heading to nearby Krylbo station. On my way I can spot a rainbow

The walk is about 40 minutes from Avesta to Krylbo

On the following day in Krylbo I can spot CFL Cargo 49501 from Insjön to Göteborg Skandiahamnen. It is delayed due to railway works ahead.

Lucky for me, TiB train arrives at Krylbo, and to get a better spot on CFL Cargo train I decide to travel to nearby Karbenning station.

The 4th and last evening in Krylbo
There's no need to walk between Krylbo and Avesta, there are local buses taking just about 10minutes
I think I've seen enough of Krylbo for this time, so I decide to take a trip to Sala
On SJ Intercity train it is possible to have a beer
