Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

It seems like there soon might be faster trains again between Oslo and Stockholm, after Linx collapsing a few years back and SJ’s somewhat reluctant re-introduction of traffic, Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter today writes that Norwegian company Ofotbanen wants to get a train between Oslo and Stockholm running as soon as possible. With a travelling time of five and a half hours, that is comparable with what Linx had in its days. Not bad at all.

Ah, de planerar en bansträckning söder om Mälaren. Är spåren fler, bättre, mindre trafik eller sträckan kortare än att åka på norrsidan?

Om du ska hälsa på föräldrarna, har du någon glädje av att tåget stannar i Karlstad eller Hallsberg?

Tja, det verkar vara samma sträckning som SJs tåg kör (över Södertälje och Katrineholm), jag antar att det är den kortaste vägen Oslo-Stockholm.

Jag brukar byta tåg i Hallsberg, så det är inte så dumt om de stannar där. Sist jag hörde om att privata aktörer ville köra sträckan så ville inte SJ släppa in några stopp i Sverige, eftersom de skulle vara mer lönsamma, och det är inte så intressant med ett tåg som bara stannar i Stockholm, tycker jag.
