Lillestrøm, Oslo

It's time for my annual Christmas/New Year trip to Spain. This time flying over to Paris and then taking trains to and from Spain.
This year I will be flying from Oslo, but first a Christmas celebration somewhere in between Stockholm and Oslo.
The winter has started early this year, and it is a white Christmas all over Sweden
Last Hectorrail train from Katrineholm to Germany before Christmas
Christmas Eve in the countryside is magical this year

Christmas day and a walk in the forest

Taking the train from Degerfors to Oslo
X55 is back in service on this route
This means you can get a 3 course dinner served at seat, if preordered in advance

Passing by the border between Sweden and Norway
As I'm heading to Lillestrøm and this train do not stop there, I get off in Kongsvinger and continue with a local train

Not much activity here in Kongsvinger
