SJ - National Railways Sweden

SJ is the name of the national railways of Sweden. SJ exploits all major lines in Sweden, like Malmo to Gothenburg, Gothenburg to Stockholm and Stockholm to Umea and Abisko. 

The high speed train of SJ is called "X2000". It's a very comfortable train running between all large cities and also to cities across the border, from Stockholm to Oslo and from Stockholm to Copenhagen. 

Other trains in Sweden are Intercity trains, regional trains and night trains. There are night trains from Malmo to Stockholm and from Stockholm to Narvik via Boden and Kiruna - this is an amazing train trip: you fall asleep when the train is driving through an endless forest and you wake up in the endless emptiness of north Sweden. 

Trains in Sweden run punctually and there are multiple trains per day between all destinations.  

SJ doesn't run the private Inlandsbanan, the picknick train through the endless Swedish forests from Gallivare to Mora.
