Welcome to the to be Stockholm city trains page. Stockholm as a million city has a lively multimode transportation with trains, several types of light and heavy rail, buses and some other forms of transportation. Because of this and its long term building it is also one the most interesting.

The National Network Local Trains

 The Local Trains

The great majority of today's local train traffic is operated by the X60 EMUs owned by SL (AB Storstockholms Lokaltrafik) and operated by the one who makes the best offer for the period of 8 -12 years. The Coradia Nordic type EMUs are known for their fast acceleration, deceleration and ability to feed back the excess energy to the networks. In normal configuration two units are always run together on the North - South main line through the Stockholm main station.

In the picture the X60 units are waiting at the Main station for the afternoon rush hour to restart their journeys through Stockholm.

X3 of Arlanda Express
Part of the Stockholm area transportation system is Arlanda Express with its X3 Precoradia EMUs. These trains dash between Stockholm Central and Arlanda international airport every 10 minutes most of the active travelling time. The Arland Express is known for its active customer services, looks like the company can sometimes even offer massage to tired air travellers at its Stockholm terminal.

In the near future the EMUs will get direct competition from the SL X60s running between Uppsala and the center of Stockholm via Arlanda airport.

Normal Gauge Trams

Stockholm Center Trams
Stockholm has two geographically separated tram networks the one ion the center being easier to find. A few years ago the line in the center ran from _near_ the city center to Djurgården outdoor area with a lot of activities. To reach the area by rail you needed to hop off the bus or Tunnelbana (metro) just to ride a tram. The trams themselves were of older types stored at the Djurgården stables.

Then the city decided to go ahead and make real use of the existing tram line by leading it one kilometer southwest almost to the center of the city. New batch of low floored trams were also ordered from Bombardier. The line has been an immediate success story with thousands of people running it daily.
