Continued Delays for X2000

Swedish Rail continues to have problems getting the high speed train X2000 to run on time.

After reaching an all time low in October 2008 with 59 % of the departures leaving on time, the company promised they would do better.

However, December still showed a result of just 66 % of departures on time, and the combined result for the year was still under 70 %, according to Swedish newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. SJ’s goal is to have everything running smoothly again by the end of March 2009.
