Technical visit: Junction station and railway hub Hallsberg
On the Wednesday afternoon (June 19th) we invite you all to visit Hallsberg. Hallsberg is to all Swedes associated with the railway and is one of the most important railway junctionsin the country. It does not only host the largest marshalling yard in Scandinavia, but also a new logistic center for the post, the headquarter of the Swedish state-owned freight rail undertaking (Green Cargo) and a vehicle workshop. We travel there from Norrköping together in a chartered train (travel time one-way ca 50 min) and will split in smaller groups for visiting a selection of all facilities. The train will depart shortly after the final session, and we expect to return to Norrköping no later than 19.00. (There will be a possibility to leave the group in Hallsberg for onward journey from there, but please inform us if you intend to do so.)
Reservation to Technical visit is made when register for the conference (i.e. in the registration procedure on this website that is made before the conference, not at the registration at the arrival to the conference). Potentially remaining slots will be distributed during the conference – ask at registration desk.
Note that the number of places for the technical visit is limited – first come, first served principle will be used!
