Technical visit: Junction station and railway hub Hallsberg
On 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 junctions in 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). Departure time 12.10.
Will split in smaller groups for visiting a selection of the local facilities. The train will depart shortly after the final session, and we expect to return to Norrköping at 18.58. (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.)
If you change your mind about technical visit – both if you can’t join or want to join, please contact registration desk in conference venue.
(Unfortunately, there are new security rules, giving unforeseen restrictions to the technical visit. We do the best we can to still fill the visit with good content.)
