Tungelsta Commuter Station

Commuter Station

The commuter station in Tungelsta is growing. The new platform will be long enough for two full trains to meet when it's finished in August. Then, next year a second track will be built between Västerhaninge and Tungelsta. That's a 5 kilometre stretch. The yellow house in the background is today a private residence, but when the railroad was new, one hundred years ago, it was a hotel. Bigger photo.

If we zoom out a bit you see some of the surroundings. The four storey buildings to the left are known as Ankaret, a housing cooperative along Allévägen.

Nice photography. The narrative is also interesting to read.

Looks like its out in the countryside until you see the second photo with the large building.

The first shot is a good example of how this rather lousy weather emphasizes the bright colours.
