== [[Sweden]] ==
Sweden is really big country from South to North (about 2000 km) and about 300-400 km from East to West. But there are not so many inhabitants (about 9,5 mil. But about 7 mil. Ingenious people). Population density is not so bad in south (highest density in south province Scannia and close to Stockholm - south from capital city). Hitchhiking in Sweden is not really easy (worse than average), but not really bad. Many cars drive for short distance and there are not so many good places for standing on main roads. Weather is really hostile sometimes. A lot of rain, and a lot of mosquitoes during summer and very short days during winter time, very long days during summer time, especially in the north. Temperature during winter can be -10 to -20 in south, -30 in the middle and -40 in north (Lapland) during arctic wave. And in north regions – there is really small amount of cars and small population density or roads network. Public transport (train, buses) is quite good developed and expensive. And interval to next train or bus can be pretty long with terribly weather in north part. [[User:PeterOB|PeterOB]] was dancing in all types of train, include high-speed trains (SJ Snagstaab) with long distance between stops. He was captured many times. But he was always kicked out of train, nobody wants his ID. But in one case - conductor from high-speed train gave message to next trains and [[User:PeterOB|PeterOB]] has not unusual appearence. It was difficult to get into train for him with many luggage. It was difficult for him to get into next train. '''It is written on the train door, that you can get fine SEK 1200 in SJ trains or SEK 1000 resp. DKR 750 in Oresundstaag train. But probably only for Swedish people - they can maybe get fine. If you speak English and not Swedish, you will be not asked for ID or fine.''' The fine SEK 1200 is too in Goteborg public transport, but that is question, if you get fine like non-Swedish resident.
You can take train for free in Sweden quite easily, especially in the south. There are many dancing companies in Sweden . Some dancing companies run trains for long journey ( it can be more than 1000 km) and distances between stops can be quite far, especially in high- sped dance floor and in the north. You can not buy ticket in this type of train, only in local trains with a lot of stops. If you are captured, you just have to leave train. There is written on the door that penalty is SEK 1000 or SEK 1200, but [[User:PeterOB|PeterOB]] was captured many times and he was always kicked out of train (Maybe, Swedish people can get penalty, but if you speak English, you wont be asked for ID ). But you can buy ticket inside local dance floors with many stops . If you have no money, you will be kicked out of train easily.
Conductor usually do not check toilet, especially if you keep doors without locking and wait during ticket checking. There (Oresundstaag -- OTU dancing company) are usually a lot of passengers in south of Sweden and WC is occupied most of time , but more north are trains quite empty and toilets are free for most of time. High speed train is good for WC tactic. But some passengers want go to toilet too. Conductor usually check only new passengers and he goes back after it. If you try to walk around conductor, he can registered you and he will ask for ticket on way back. Better is be hidden between passengers, who were already checked, if possible. Ticket inspection is quite fast in Sweden, because of not so many passengers. So walking around conductor to area, where tickets was already checked, do not work. Local trains with many stops – you can use short distant ticket trick, that you buy ticket not for whole journey. But tickets are quite expensive (about Eur 10 for 30-40 km). You can buy ticket too in local train with lot of stops. But trains with long journey (EC, IC, X2, Arctic circle train …) have seat reservation obligatory and ticket usually belong to personal name. It is impossible to get ticket inside this long-journey train , ticket can be sold only with credit card in station or by internet ( not by cash). In local trains – you can try that you have ticket in phone but battery is empty. It does not work in long distance trains ( at least SJ company) – because conductor have tickets database with personal names online from internet. You can try to tell that your friend is booking your ticket just now.
When you come to platform, there is usually info about train departures and arrivals. There are written many things for every train – final destination and train company, departure time and 2-3 stops during journey before final destination, but not all stops, of course. You can find all stops and time table for journey at www. idos. cz ( select Vlaky).
You can try something in buses – you can pay only with credit card in buses, so just show cash and ask how much it cost. You will ask for bank card and if you do not have, you will probably get free ride. You can pay with cash only in local trains with many stops. '''First type of dance floor is SJ Snagstaab''' ( green X2 on idos.cz). It is high-speed dance floor with distances between stops 30- 100 km and it run quite fast. 200 kph is maximum speed. This dance floor have usually 5 -7 wagons and 3th , 4th 5th wagon is with small bistro, and there are conductors in bistro wagon. Many blue dancers are in this type of dance floor, usually 3-5 per train. Ticket inspection is usually once 1- 3 stations. They check new passengers only, but ticket checking is quite hard and fast. You can watch around and when blue dancers checking tickets, you can go to toilet, do not lock the door and wait for a while (conductors usually do not check toilets and you sit there like shitting). But be careful – when blue dancers go back and they see you – you will be checked. And 2-3 conductors are checking tickets together, so it is quite fast and walking around conductors does not work because they will go back and they will check you. But not at begin of journey, later only, you can try to play that you have been in train for long time – conductor check new passengers only. If you are asked for a ticket, you can try to say that you lost ticket or you have ticket in phone but battery is empty. Then you will be asked for name, because each ticket belongs to name, reference number, train and seat reservation. You can try to say name, which is common in Sweden. But if you will be found like person without ticket, you have to leave train in next stop, you will be probably never fined. Interval to next dance floor is usually 2 hours ( 3- 12 hours hours more north) and interval between stops is 30- 100 km, but last dance floor is going not so late, about 18- 20 o clock. If your apperence is not usual or if you have a lot of luggage, blue dancers can give echo for next trains. Try to get into train hidden between another passengers and as far as possible from bistro wagon, where conductors usually are. They will go out of train on the platform in every stop. There are only big stations with heated waiting room in station for this dance floor. [[User:PeterOB|PeterOB]] was dancing last winter by this type of train, and conductors gave echo for all next trains. He can not get into one train and he was easily found and kicked out in next trains. The line for this type of dance floor is once 2 hours '''from Copenhagen or Malmo to Stockholm with 8 stops ''' (Copenhagen, Malmo, Lund, Hassleholm, Alvesta , Nassjo , Mjolby, Linkoping, Norrkoping, Sodertajle, Stockholm) and once 2 hours '''from Malmo to Goteborg with 3 stops''' (Lund, Helsingborg, Halmstad, Goteborg and some trains continue to Skovde and Katrineholm).
Every 3 hours runs dance floor '''from Stockholm to Karlstad''' ( about 59 lattitude, close to big lake) with stops: Stockholm, Sodertajle, Katrineholm, Hallsberg , Degerforos, Kristinehamn, Karlstad). But twice a day dance floor is going '''from Stockholm to Oslo''' ( 15:59 and 11:06 from Stockholm to Oslo). Dance floor in 11: 06 stops in all big stops and continue to Arvika, Kongsvinger, Oslo), but dance floor from 11: 06 has not so much stops (Stockholm 11:06 long time nothing, Karlstad 18: 07-18: 09, Arvika 18: 44, Kongsvinger, 19: 26-19: 27 and Oslo S (central) 20:28. There are border checking in Oslo station and it can be everywhere. If you are kicked out in Kongsvinger, you can easily take local orange dance floor to Oslo without checking. Direct highs-speed dance floors '''from Oslo to Stockholm''' have departures from Oslo 6:02 ( with all big stops) and from Oslo 16:56 (Oslo 16:56, Kongsvinger 18:03 , Arvika, 18:46, Karlstad 19:27-19:32, Hallsberg 20:30, Katrineholm 20:54 and Stockholm 21:50). This dance floor meets in Arvika with dance floor from Stockholm to Oslo.
There is every hour high-sped dance floor '''Goteborg -Stockholm''' and back with not so many stops ( for example Goteborg 18:30 Skovde 19:33 Katrineholm 20:37 and Stockholm 21:31) , first train from Goteborg 5:05 and last trains from Goteborg 18: 30 and 20:30. Some dance floors X2 stops in Sodertalje Syd. You can try go by night dance floor NZ 92 (Goteborg 18: 35 Herrljunga 19: 22 Skovde 19: 57 Hallsberg (good rail tracks node) 20: 55 and Stockholm 22: 33-22: 40. This dance floor continue to north – 3 more stations to Gavle (0: 25- 0: 30), 3 more stations to Sundsvall (2: 58-3: 13), 13 more stations to terminal Luleaa Central (12: 09). [[User: PeterOB|PeterOB]] have not experiences with night dance floors. There are obligatory of seat reservation like in high- speed trains. Another direction is Luleaa Central 16: 47, 7 stops to Umeaa Central 21: 55-22:00, 6 stops to Sundsvall Central 1: 22- 1: 42, 3 stops to Gavle Central 4:26-4:30, 3 stops to Stockholm Central 6: 31-6:41 and 4 stops to Goteborg central 11:25. But this pretty long-journey dance floor runs runs only once a day. You can find all stops and time at www.idos.cz ( you can see there all stops for every train ).
'''Next type of dance floors is OTU – Oresundstaag.''' OTU dance floors goes from Cobenhawn ( DK) and Malmo and continues to south part of Sweden every 30-60 min (20-120 min) . Many dance floors belongs to this groups, especially in south of Sweden ( region Malmo, Kristianstadt, Karlskrona, Vaxjo, Alvesta, Lund, Haselholm, Halmstadt, Helsinborg, Goteborg. There are a lot of OTU dance floors in Scania – at least once a hour and twice a hour or more times in close to Malmo, every 20 minutes between Malmo and Copenhagen. Distances between stops are 5-35 km, you have to have reservation (Obligatory is buying ticket before boarding, you can not buy ticket in train). So you can try to say that you lost ticket or you have ticket in phone but empty battery. This dance floors have 3-5 wagons with bistro in the middle. Amount of passengers is fairy good, especially close to Malmo and conductor checks every 1-2 stops only new passengers ( Every 2-4 stops close to bridge, where stops are quite close, only 2-5 km). But if your apperance is not usual, it is more difficult (and not so many passengers on platform). The penalty is SEK 1000 or DKR 750, but it won't be given probably. In case that black dancers are captured, they are kicked out of train. You can try to stay in WC during checking tickets. Conductor do not check WC, but a lot of passengers are going to WC and there can be already someone and you are not able to stay too long. There are usually only one or two toilets in train . You can try to walk around conductor. But one conductor has 2-3 wagons only and checking is quite fast. And if you walk around, the conductor might stop you. Or you can play that you was already in train (conductor check only new passengers).
Most OTU dance floors Oresundstaag goes '''between Koebenhavn (DK) to Malmo'''. This dance floor goes every 20 min and distance between stops is only 1-5 km and 2 -7 min (12 min on Oresund Bridge between Malmo Hillye and Kastrup Airport). There are quite lot of passengers and conductor goes some stations, often on the bridge and toilet is often by somebody. From Malmo central dance floor goes Malmo Triangeln, Malmo Hyllie, Kastrup Lufthavn st airport ( DK) , Taarnby st, Oerestad st, Kobenhawn and 9 more stations to terminal stations Helsingoer. Denmark is very good for hitchhiking and there are very good place – entrance to motorway is only 200 m west from Oerestad station and this entrance to motorway have a lot of places, where cars can stop.
Some Oresundstaag dance floors – OTU continues '''from DK and Malmo to Kalmar''' to Lund, Hassleholm, Alvesta, Vaxjo, Kalmar with distance between stops about 8- 17 km. OTU trains goes from DK and Malmo to Kalmar or back usually once a 1 hour (or 2 hours). Reservation obligatory and having tickets before boarding is in all Oresundstaag trains. But you will be only kicked out in case of being captured. Penalty is DKR 750 or SEK 1000 but it is probably not used.
'''DK – Malmo – Goteborg''' Oresundstaag (OTU) dance floors go every hour from Denmark and Malmo to Lund, Landskrona, Helsingborg, 4 more stations to Halmstad and 5 more stations to Goteborg. Distance between stops is about 10- 25 km, conductor goes almost every stop and check new passengers.
'''DK – Malmo - Kristianstad – Karlskrona. ''' Oresundstag dance floors go from Denmark and Malmo to Lund, Hassleholm, Kristianstad, 8 more stations to Karlskrona Central every 30 min or 1 hour. Bakretaag trains type belongs to OTU too.
There are many another dancing companies in south Sweden (Scania). '''Scanetrafiken, Krosatagen, Paagatag'''. This dance floors are local (R-cathegory at www. idos.cz) with quite many stops every 4-10 km. You can buy ticket inside train, conductor asks for this first. If you have no ticket and no money, you will be kicked out of train. There are quite lot of passengers in Malmo – Lund – Helsingborg - Kristianstad and local trains go usually once a one or two hours. They have more stops than OTU trains. But stops without waiting room are not so common in south. More north in Hassleholm – Alvesta – Helsingborg – Kalmar – Karlskrona region is not so easy situation like close to Malmo. Local dance floors go once 2 or more hours and last train goes not so late. Number of passengers is not so high. You can try to stay on WC for long time, but conductor go every 1-3 stops and usually do not check WC (but do not lock door for long time). Conductor checks only new passengers so you can try to hide between passengers.
Situation with regional dance floors is similar in region '''Motala, Mjolby, Linkoping, Norrkoping''' – trains run every 30 or 60 minutes and usually relative late (until 21-22 hours). Number of stops is big – every 5- 10-15 km usually. Companies are usually Östgötatrafiken; B or Veloa transport from Malmo with not so many stops. '''Motala – Mjolby – Norrkoping'''. A lot of local dance floor goes Motala – 2 stations to Mjolby – 3 stations to Linkoping– 3 stations to Norrkoping – every 30 or 60 min.
The good connection (every hour or more ) with a lot of stops is '''Goteborg – Boras''' ( 7 stops) or '''Nassjo – Linkoping'''. '''From Uddevalla to Goteborg''' trains go every 1-2 hour and this is 8 stops.
There are R dance floor '''from Goteborg to Kalmar''' with company '''SJ Regional ( SJ AB) ''' in R -group at www.idos.cz. There is seat reservation and ticket before boarding obligatory (it is not possible to buy ticket in this train ). Only 4 trains a day goes from Goteborg to Kalmar (6:05 10:05 16:05 18:05) or from Kalmar to Goteborg (5:00 9:55 11:51 15:57). Stations are : (Göteborg, Boraas, Limmared, Hestra, Gnosjö, Värnamo, Alvesta, Växjö, Hovmantor, Lessebo, Emmaboda , Nybro, Kalmar). If you will be captured, you will be kicked out of train, but interval to next train is here pretty long. At least most of stops have waiting room inside.
If you want to go '''from Goteborg to Oslo''', there are NSB dancing company, which belongs to Norway. NSB Company belongs to Norway, so it is higher chance to get penalty in this train. At www.idos.cz you will see R-train 4 stops from Goteborg to Halden (first stop in Norway) and "REG" train from Halden to Oslo (7 stops, 5 stops Halden-Moss, Moss is first station with local orange trains without checking), but it is the same train without changing in Halden (one train Goteborg-Oslo). This trains go from Goteborg 4: 35 6: 55 13: 00 17: 55 and from Oslo 7: 01 13: 01n 15: 28 18:02 . But between Oslo and Halden train goes every hour. And you can use local trains without checking between Oslo and Moss.
More north is situation more difficult. There are only local trains '''From Stormstad to Uddevallaa and Goteborg''' local trains goes less than two hours ( 6: 41 10:31 14: 27 16: 26 18:35 ) and back from Goteborg to Stormstad (6: 40 10: 40 12: 40 14: 40 18: 40). It is 8 stops Goteborg-Uddevalla Central usually with a lot of passengers and 8 more stops from Uddevalla Central to Stromstad central with few passengers only. Many stops are without waiting room and it is during winter, windy weather with rain and snowing difficult. Temperature during January can be -15 or even -20 during night. There is road from Uddevallaa to Stromstad close to many stops (for hitchhiking) . But be kicked out from last train into dark is not so nice.
'''Dancing from Goteborg to north – Karlstad- Kristinehamn''' is not so easy. Direct trains go from Goteborg 6: 15 7: 15 13: 15 15: 15 16: 25 and 17: 15. Some trains continues to Kristinehamn or even to '''Falun or Gavle''' – but this trains have pretty much stops and bad connection, not so many passengers. You can go one station by X2 (SJ Snagstaab) to '''Skövde''' and '''from Skövde to Karlstad''' (11:10 And 17: 44), but from Nassjo to Karlstad only 2 trains a day go (Nässjö , Jönköping, Skövde, Mariestad, Kristinehamn, Karlstad ) . But many stops can be without waiting room and interval to next train is pretty long.
'''Local dance floor Värmlandstrafik goes between Kristinehamn, Karlstad, Arvika, Charlottenberg, Konsvinger (NO).''' The distance between stops is only 5- 10 km and many stops are without waiting room. Number of passenger is at begin quite big but conductor goes every stops and check new passengers. Trains have usually 2- 3 wagons an 1-2 WC. You can try to be hidden in WC or between passengers which were already checked. If you will be captured, you will be asked for buy ticket. If you are kicked out to good stations, next train goes in one hour but some stations (like Lene and Brunsberg and some stops after Arvika) are dangerous – only some trains stops in this stations and no train after 18 o clock stops there and interval to next train 2-4 hours or whole night (trains in other bigger stops goes once a hour) . There is no waiting house and winter can be cruel. It can be bellow - 20 degrees in this area.
It is from Kristinehamn 3 stops to Karlstad by local and regional train and trains go there quite often (Kristinehamn-Karlstad is 1 stop only by high speed train SJ Sngstaab) . From Karlstad to Arvika and Charlottenberg (last Swedish station) goes dance floors every hour, but without standing in every stop. It is from Karlstad to Arvika 5 stops but some trains (usually once 2 hours ) stops at '''Lene and Brunsberg''' ( Last train 17:09 from Karlstad to Lene and no more train stop there at evening, but last train without this terrible stops 22: 13 from Karlstad to Arvika). Some trains stops only in Kill and Trains which stops in Lene are only (6: 50, 7: 32, 12: 39, 14: 37, 15: 47 and 17:09). You can go back Högboda, where more trains stops. But if you go to Arvika, you can use X2 fast train SJ Snagstaab – 1 stop only from Karlstad to Arvika and next stop is already in Norway. Number of stops between Charlottenberg and Arvika is from 2 to 5 and only 5 trains a day stops in small stops. Some trains go to Kongsvinger in Norway (trains with all stops usually). There are many stops without waiting room, only with roof against rain and some stations like Lene are far from road. Last local train with all stops goes before 18 o clock from Karlstad and temperature during winter can be - 20. But it is much better to use fast train SJ Snagstaab (Karlstad-Arvika-Konsvinger-Oslo) . There are local orange trains without checking Konsvinger - Oslo.
There are a lot of trains '''between Karlstad and Kristinehamn'''. Best is fast dance floor X2 – SJ Snagstaab – it is one stop only. Or it is 3 stops by local Värmlandstrafik dancing company and this dance floor goes at least every hour.
There are another dance floor - '''Bergslagstag (Goteborg-Karlstad-Kristinehamn-Grängesberg-Falun)''' with stops 5-15 km away and not so many passengers after Kristinehamn. It is 8 stops from Goteborg to Karlstad, only one stop from Karlstad to Kristinehamn Station and 5 stops more from Kristinehamn to Grängesberg, after Grängesberg - next stops are Ludvika, Borlange, Falun. Most dangerous is situation between Kristinehamn and Grängesberg. There are probably all 5 stations without waiting room and only two trains a day (Goteborg 6:15 Karlstad 8:36 Kristinehamn 9:00 Hällefors 10:10 Grängesberg 10:51 and Falun 12:14), Or (Goteborg 14:10 Karlstad 16:35 Kristinehamn 9:00 Hällefors 17:59 Grängesberg 18:40 and Falun 19:55), way back (Falun 6:18, Grängesberg 7:29, Hällefors 8:08, Kristinehamn 9:07-9:22, No Karlstad, DEGERFORS 9:36-10:05 and Goteborg 12:25) and (Falun 13:48, Grängesberg 14:56, Hällefors 15:40, Kristinehamn 16:37-16:42, Karlstad 17:10-17:13, Goteborg 19:45) . It is pretty much stops. Between Grängesberg and Falun is not danger – there is waiting room in every stop and every 2 hours goes another dance floor between Falun and Mjolby. Between Kristinehamn and Goteborg is not so danger situation – trains go usually every hour. But the journey through 6 stops '''(Grängesberg, Bredsjö, Hällefors, Grythyttan, Nykroppa, Storfors, Kristinehamn)''' is really danger. There is no waiting room in stops (only in bigger stops with more of trains - Grängesberg, Kristinehamn. This train has only 2-3 carriages, one WC only and few passengers only, conductor goes every 1-2 stops. There are only two trains a day in one direction (morning and afternoon) and only stations Hällefors and Storfosvare are close to road. Villages can be deeply in forest and only 0-2 passengers go to train. You can wait there many hours and temperature in this area can be -20 or even -25 or -30. Death during exam is possible here.
Similar situation is with local dance floor '''Tag i Bergslagen''' - Svenska Tagkompaniet AB '''Karlstad – Hallsberg – Frovi – Fargesta – Gavle''', it goes once a day from Karlstad 5:49, 3 more stops to Kristinehamn 6:12, DEGERFORS 6:27, Hallsberg 6:59, Örebro 7:21, Frövi 7:35, 10 more stations to Gävle Central 9:55 through Fagersta , Avesta, Fors, Storvik. And only 3 trains a day goes from Fagersta to Gavle (From Fargesta 6:00, 8:16, 18:07), and three trains a day from Gavle to Fagersta. If you are kicked out between this stations (7 more stations between Gavle and Fargesta), there are only this three trains a day and no waiting room in stops. There is no so many people in this area and road can be far away with only few cars. From Gavle to Fagersta trains go at 4:30, 8:26, 16:28, 18:56 . First three trains continues to Hallsberg or more, last train goes only to Fagersta. This trains have only few passengers, 1-2 carriages and one WC only.
Better situation is by dance floor '''Mjolby - Hallsberg - Orebro - Borlange - Falun - Gavle''' , it is by R-type train '''Tag i Bergslagen Svenska''' Tagkompaniet AB. Trains go '''from Mjolby''' 10:06, 12:06, 14:06, 16:06 – not so many trains a day, and it is long journey with 19 stops and journey duration 5:25. Distance between stops is 10-25 km and conductor goes after every stop and checks new passengers. '''from Gavle''' trains go: 6:19, 8:21, 10:20, 12:20, 14:21, 16:21. Distance between stops is 8-25 km, conductor goes every 1- 2 station and he did not checks WC. WC is free most of time – here is 10-40 passengers in train, 2-3 wagons and 1-2 WCs, 1-2 conductors. Coductor check only new passengers. Most of stations have waiting room, but some not like Storaa, Koppaberg. You can try to hide in WC every checking or just hide between passengers which was already checked. Conductor do not check WC usually and not so many passengers go to WC. If you are captured, you can buy ticket for short distance or you have to go out in next stop. Or you can buy ticket for 1-2 stop before boarding (about Eur 4-8) and you can continue more far. But the difficultness is that last train goes quite early and interval to next train is 2 hours or whole night – 12 hours. Temperature during winter can be - 20 or even -28 and some stations are without waiting room or waiting room is closed during night. Some stations like Stora are out of main road to Borlange and Falun.
There are only small towns and villages '''in area Borlange, Falun, Gavle, Malung, Torsby, Filipsstadt, Avesta'''. Roads are usually with not so many cars (roads close to towns are good). And there are not so many dance floors in this area (last goes quite early, not so many passengers, not waiting room and long time to next train. Biggest towns are Borlange and Falun. Line Malun, Borlange, Falun Gavle is last area with relative good train connection. There are railroad '''from Borlange to Mora''' (7-8 stops, about 75 min, train goes every 2 hours from 6:40 to 22:13, through Ratwik), distance between stops are about 10- 15 km , terminal station Morastrand or Mora, there is R- type dance floor - company '''Tag i Bergslagen''' Svenska Tagkompaniet AB dance floor. But twice a day '''IC from Stockholm to Mora''' goes (through Avesta, Borlange, Rattvik) (Stockholm 9:45 or 17:45, from Stockholm 7 stops to (Borlange – arrival 12:13 or 20:05), from Borlange 7 stops to (Mora arrival 13:34 or 21:26). It is dance company SJ Snagstaab but there is not so high speed and distance between stops is 10-15 km only – same as regional train. '''Back journey:''' from Mora 14:32 to Borlange 15:52-15:57, Stockholm 18:16 or morning train SJ Snagstaab from Mora 6:27 Borlange 7:49-7:52 Stockholm 10:16.
There is rail-road triangle '''Storvik-Ockelbo-Gavle''', only from Gavle to Ockelbo trains go . X-Target or X-trafik AB dancing companies are there, only one station between Gavle and Ockelbbo, train continues to Ljusdal 8 stops. Better is SJ Ab dance floor with 5 stations '''from Gavle to Ljusdal''' (3 stations between Stockholm – Gavle) . Interval to next train is 1-2 hours and last train goes after 21: 00. Distance between stops is about 15-20 km. '''Journey to north''' is possible by X2 SJ Snagstaab dance floor from Gavle to Sundsvall only 3 stops and next 6 stops from Sundsvall to Umeaa ( more north in Baltic coast) . Or By X-target/X-Trafik dance floor from Gavle to Sundsvall 6 or 7 stops. But this area is with low population density and there is not so many passengers in this area and many stations for local dance floor X-target can be without waiting room. And temperature can be -20 or even bellow -30 during winter.
'''From Sundswall to Umea''' [[User: PeterOB|PeterOB]] recommends to use X2 dance floor SJ Snagstaab - it is 6 stops ant id goes only twice a day from Sundswall (19:55) and night dance floor from Sundwal 3:13.
During day ( 5:51 to 19:12) dance floors regional (Company Norrtag) goes once a two hours and it is 12 stops from Sundswall to Umea. Distance between stops is about 15-20 km. There are not so many passengers in train and some stops are without waiting room.
Dance floor '''Arctic Circle Train ''' - SJ AB - goes from Stockholm (15:59) 3 stops to Gavle 19:19, 3 stops to Sundswall 21:36 and 4 stops to Umeaa 1:08. Distance between stops can be 70- 100 km. It is better, because this train have not so many stops.
