Photographer's Note

Lund's main railway station (Lund C) is usually a very busy place, with thousands of travellers and commuters arriving and departing throughout the day.

The railway is one of the most operated in Sweden and passenger traffic is supplied by five different types:

1. Regional commuter traffic (Pεgatεg), for mainly southwestern Scania.

2. Interregional commuter traffic (Kustpilen), from Malmφ/Copenhagen to southeastern Sweden - along the coast.

3. National traffic (InterCity and X2000), from Malmφ/Copenhagen to Stockholm.

4. International and interegional commuter traffic (Φresundstεg), joint Swedish/Danish, mainly on both sides of the Ψresund - sometimes extended to Gothenburg or Kalmar.

5. International traffic (Linx), joint Swedish/Norwegian, from Copenhagen via Gothenburg to Oslo.

In addition there's also cargo traffic run by Green Cargo.

The railway Malmφ - Lund was the first State Railway in Sweden, opening in 1856 - the station itself was the third - and at it's height Lund was served by seven different railways. Today only two remain as there's a junction just north of the station, where traffic for western Sweden leaves the main railway.

The image shows the regional commuter (pεgatεg) - in characteristic lilac and gray colors with red stripe - leaving the station for Helsingborg at 8:06 pm and the platform is unusually empty.
