Downtown Tungelsta

Winter in Tungelsta

One of those Tungelsta views that I document every now and then. In a few years time this snowy field will be filled with new houses. This is the view from Söderbyvägen in Lillgården, towards the commuter station. The new X60 has just arrived from Nynäshamn and is waiting for the commuter train from Västerhaninge. There's only one railway track here, so the trains always meet at the Tungelsta station. But that will soon change. If you would like to see the old commuter, press here for The Ice Train. The yellow station house dates back to 1902. I have showed it to you before. It was designed by the famous architect Ferdinand Boberg. Today it is used as a private home, and you will also find the Handlaget's handicraft boutique there.

Look at that sleek new train. I sure wish we had been lucky enough to get snow this year, but I guess not.

The train looks very modern and houses form an interesting backdrop for the entire scene.

Beautiful, and I do like the colors.

They want to put houses in the field? Wonder how loud that train would be?

This is a beautiful photo - I like the three areas - white snow, blue train and the yellow/gold houses.
Cheers.

It's a modest train and very silent. And yes there are plans to build many new houses on this field. And with the second rail track there will also be a couple of new bridges here and roads so the area will change dramatically in the next few years.
