With Snälltåget on Malmö -Stockholm
Title:  With Snälltåget on Malmö -Stockholm
Description:  Snälltåget is a Transdev Train, a French multi-modal company. The Snälltåget service is pulled by Swedish privat operator Hectorrail. Several time our train had to take the sidings to let pass SJ high speed trains. Therefore is was late half an hour, and I missed the connection on Bla Taget, another privat company in Sweden.

With Bla Taget on Stockholm - Skövde
Title:  With Bla Taget on Stockholm - Skövde
Description:  Due to late arrival I missed the experience of high comfort Bla Taget, Blue Train. So I had to take another ride by SJ, 10% more expensive back to Skövde. With a modern Vectron locomotive pulling a row of classic, 1960s carriages, Bla Taget is a nostalgic but comfortable alternative to Sweden’s modern intercity trains. The train is operated by Skandinaviska Jernbanor AB five days a week between Uppsala - Stockholm - Gothenburg, prices about half of SJ first class.
