Train delays in central Sweden

Train services between Södertälje and Gävle were hit by severe delays throughout the day, after a goods train damaged the tracks between the two cities.

Services between Gävle and Södertälje via Uppsala and Stockholm were suspended while rail authorities carried our inspections along the affected area.

By midday the checks were complete, but delays continued to disrupt services, according to news agency TT.
