The large Hall of the Central Railway Station


Sweden has over 9,000 miles of railway
supplemented by an excellent system of canals. About
one-third of her railways are state owned. The Electric
trains between Stockholm and Gothenburg do the
journey in 5 hours and 44 minutes, distance being
458 kilomters or 2841/2 Engilsh miles. This railway
is the longest electric railway in Europe, the carriages
being of the bogie wagon Pullman Corridor saloon
type and very comfortable with lounge chairs on the
day trains, even on third class carriages.

Restaurant cars with excellent cuisine are attached
to all the principal day-trains. The carriages are very
clean and well ventilated and heated during the
winter which adds to the comfort. If the windows are
open there is no dust, soot, smoke or steam from the
locomotives even if passing through a tunnel.

Reservation of Seats in the principal trains from
and to Gothenburg can be made one hour before
the train starts.

The reservation fee being 25 öre for each seat.
