Swedish Day trains network
The X2000 is SJ´s high-speed train, travelling smoothly and silently at up to 200km/h (125mph). The X2000 allows you to travel up and down Sweden with Stockholm as your central point, giving you greater flexibility with your journey choices.
Because the tracks couldn’t be built in straight lines, the Swedes had to develop a tilting technology, which could be used on the existing track. This successful technology is being copied on train networks the world over and is fascinating to see.
The train is totally family friendly, with some trains even having a family car with a play corner (including a slide!), where children can enjoy themselves and make new friends.
Some of the X2000 trains are double-decker, making your site-seeing journey even more effective.

"Theft incident"Veronica Shuk Yee l. 26/10/2012
My backpack was stolen on the way on this route as the train was over-crowded due to the direct train to Stockholm was cancelled without proper notice in English. Platforrm staff was asked if the train was cancelled but they did not reply such cancellation. Until I found out from others for such cancellation, the re-direct train was so crowded to board. Coach staff does not help anyway as there is no way to reach any staff on the coach after the incident. It was a very bad experience for this route Denmark-Sweden. Comfort Value for money Convenience
