Swedish Railway Museum Gavle
 The Swedish Railway Museum -- Gavle

Located a couple of hours north of Stockholm, and about a 30 minute walk from the station,  in the beautiful city of Gavle, this museum contains a modest but very interesting collection of rolling stock, model trains, diaramas and photos which document the history of railroading in Sweden. Though somewhat compact in size -- making indoor photography a real challenge -- there is ample descriptive material in English to give one a good feel of the collection.  The museum has a small cafe and bookstore and a very nominal admission fee. The morning I was there in September 2003 I think I was the only visitor.









A walk to and from the museum passes through pretty neighborhoods in a graceful city of water, boulevards and fine buildings.

Coming and going from Gavle takes one through a large and accomodating station with a very nice restaurant and access to Intercity expresses which run hourly to and from Stockholm, with an option to take an alternative faster extra fare X2000 train each hour.
