If it's desired to move this to Railfanning, I won't argue. However, I think it may have some value here in that it illustrates a heritage railway in Sweden that has a lot of the "immersive atmosphere" that some, including myself, would say we should strive for.

The road, by the way, is narrow gauge, not very long (I think it's only six kilometers), but does have some interesting equipment, including a Mallet and, almost more interesting, wooden passenger cars with an apparent natural (varnished, not painted) finish.

Looks like preservation to me! Mighty interesting to boot, thanks.

I've ridden it. It is a very nice operation.
Many of the Swedish heritage railroads are run like railroads, with all of the proper staffing, uniforms, and excellent equipment, providing local service on operating days. The staff is generally very dedicated. I rode one Swedish heritage railroad and the conductor was actually the head of the Swedish defense administration.
