Museum Railway in Sweden

In Sweden, there are many museum railways that is operated by NGOs. Volunteers there maintain old steam engines partially as their hobby, but also to show the tradition and history of their own country to younger generation.

In year 2001, the railway between Stockholm and Nynashamn cerebrated a centennial anniversary and a special train ran from Stockholm on September 30. You can see the movie from here.

This steam engine No. 1136 was built in 1912.

Carriages are also from old good time.

The volunteers wear old fashioned uniform.

This train belongs to Nynashamns Jarnvagsmuseum (Railway Museum).

Another NGO called Stockhlms Anglokssallskap also operated special train with a steam engineon Dec. 15 and 16, 2001 between Norra Station and Vartans Station in Stockhlm.

Between Mariefred and Taxinge in the western suburb of Stockholm, there is a museum railway that operates steam engines on narrow gauge.

In Lappland, steam engines are operated on Inlandsbanan (Inland Railway) from Arvidsjur during the Summer weekends. This is very special because you can experience the "Wild West" days of northern Sweden.

The Swedish Railway Museam is located at G革le 170km north to Stockholm, and you can see various exhibitions such as the first steam locomotive built in Sweden and the special carriage for the royalites.
