Rail service resumes between Gothenburg and Stockholm

Rail traffic between Gothenburg and Alingsås came to a halt just after 4:00 PM Saturday afternoon, because of an accident outside Partille. The stop affected all rail traffic between Gothenburg and Skövde, as well as trains continuing north to Stockholm.

Connections to Mariestad and Nässjö were also affected, as were commuter trains in Gothenburg.

With the half marathon in Gothenburg Saturday, an unusual number of travelers are trying to return home, and extra help is being provided at the city’s Central Station.

Some rail operators provided replacement buses. Service on the line resumed at around 6:00 PM.
