Rail service resumes after storm closures

With just one exception rail traffic in southern Sweden has returned to normal after the passage of the storm Svea.

Most lines were back in service Saturday morning; all but one of the rest during the early afternoon. The sole exception is the line between Herrljunga and Borås, which remains closed after a tree fell across the overhead wires.

The damage is reportedly so extensive that traffic isn’t expected to resume before Sunday morning.

Svea never reached the wind speeds meteorologists had forecast, and has now moved on over Finland.
