Our blog - in swedish

Our blog is mostly in swedish, but posts usually include summaries in english.

You may choose to spend a whole day on the railway, or combine it with sightseeing in the nearby area. We offer two popular roundtrips, “Slott & Ånga” (The short roundtrip) between Mariefred and Taxinge. Our other roundtrip is the “Mariefredsrundturen”, between Stockholm and Mariefred. At our station in Mariefred, there is a Café, a shop, and a historic railway showcase. You can find timetables, prices, and other information under the menus.

Our rolling stock; including some of our engines, have once upon a time collectively served at seven railways with 600 mm gauge that had regular passenger traffic. These have been carefully restored by hardworking volunteers of the railway society Östra Södermanlands Järnväg.
