Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Linx AB was a railway company that operated inter-Scandinavian passenger trains between 2001 and 2004. Established as a joint venture between the Norwegian State Railways and the Swedish state-owned SJ, Linx operated the routes from Oslo, Norway, to Stockholm, Sweden, and from Oslo via Gothenburg, Sweden, to Copenhagen, Denmark. The company's main rolling stock were 11 X2 electric multiple units. The background for the establishment of Linx was an informal agreement between the ministers of transport in Norway, Sweden and Denmark to establish high-speed rail connection between the three capitals. Linx was seen as the operative branch of this agreement, while the states would have to invest in better rail infrastructure to allow higher speeds.show more
