The Crocodile visit Sweden

In 1915 the Iron ore Line section from Kiruna to Riksgränsen was opened for electric traction. This was the very first part of the State owned railway net where electric traction could be used completely. Due to that we have had environmentally friendly trains in Sweden for 100 years. This is worth celebrating by presenting 100 years of electric trains throughout the Swedish railway history. In Gävle we will gather up as many electric locomotives as we can from that era.
