At October the 15th 2004, when driving from Gothenburg to Stockholm for Hans Hammarstens Westridge Mini Meet, I did stop on the way for taking some photos. ÖSLJ is a few miles west of Stockholm.

Läggesta

Läggesta is the end-station of the ÖSLJ.

This wagon did orginally run on the ´Nybergets järnväg´ (New Mountain Rwy) situated in the middle of Sweden. There exist a drawing on this wagon in the book ´Vägen från gruva och bruk´ (The road from mine and mill) on page 145 - 146. These were made by the swedish firm Atlas and therefore often referred to as the Atlas wagons..
