Events - Forsvik 2012
This article was published Apr 01, 2012.
First Caravan trip for the year, this time to Karlsborg camping and for a visit to the old Forsvik Foundry.
These pictures were actually taken in 2012, but I forgot to add them back then.
This was once one of the biggest foundries in Europe making both smaller tools and up to gigantic ocean steamer propellers. Today it is a living museum and home to both this little 600mm gauge railway and harbour for the steam ship E Nordevall II.
E Nordevall II
This ship is a replica finished just last year (2012) from the original plans. Only difference is the addition of modern safety and navigation tools. It´s home harbour is Forsvik but can travel all the way from Gothenburg at the coast and up through Göta Canal to Stockholm, with Forsvik about in the middle.
