#217 About a Picture


Our house is built about 200 meters from the main railway between Stockholm and Malmö. Trains are passing at high speed around the clock. When we moved here we were a little afraid that the trains should be disturbing – but it has almost become the other way around. The trains are our old friends now. The X2000 high speed trains are passing at 200 km/h a couple of times every hour. The green and yellow postal train only at 160 km/h. Two or three times per hour the local train stops, lets people off and collects some new. Then we have the freight trains. Long or even longer. Our friends.
