The Old Stationhouse

The Old Stationhouse

Another look at the Tungelsta Station House, along the Nynäsbanan railway line. It's been there since 1901. The architect was the famous Ferdinand Boberg. Back then the trip from Nynäshamn to Stockholm took two hours with the steam train. These days it takes one hour with the commuter. Today there's a handicraft boutique in the beautiful old building, but the former train dispatcher still lives on the second floor.
