Some SJ Snabbtaag goes between Stockholm and Karlstad only and some of them takes whole journey between Oslo and Stockholm. Only some trains stops in Katrineholm and Sodertajle Syd, most of trains does not stops between Hallsberg and Stockholm. There was SJ Snabbtaag without stop between Stockholm and Karlstad, but not anymore. It can be SJ IC train instead of SJ Snabbtaag between Karlstad and Stockholm with the same stops. And there is twice a day between Goteborg – Karlstad – Hallsberg – Stockholm train There is Night Dance Floor, SJ Nattaget (SJ Nattaget at departure board and green NZ at idos.cz) by main dancing long journey lines (Malmo-Stockholm), (Goteborg-Stockholm-Gavle-Sundsvall-Umea-Boden-Luleaa), and long journey night dance floor Arctic circle train (Stockholm-Gavle-Sundsvall-Umea-Boden-Kiruna-Narvik). It is in one line one night train per night in one direction. NZ93 and NZ 94 Arctic circle train goes between Stockholm and Narvik, it is best with fewest stops at all. NZ 91 and NZ 92 goes between Goteborg – Stockholm – Luleaa, but some days only between Stockholm and Luleaa. NZ 91 and NZ 92 can be like blue regional R91 and R 91 at idos.cz resp. SJ Orviga between Sundsvall-Umeaa-Boden-Luleaa. NZ 91 and NZ 92 do not goes all days from-to Goteborg, some days only between Stockholm and Luleaa. After Lund – OTU dancing line splits to 3 branches. Distance between stops is usually 10-30 km and 10-25 min. Conductor comes usually once 1-2 stations and he checks only new passengers.

SJ Regional goes once a two hours between Goteborg and Karlstad. It is 8 stops, distance between stops is 10-30 km. There can be quite lot of passengers and train has few wagons. You can hide in toilet, when conductor is coming (not so easy to see to another wagons), or just between many people like you were already checked. Stos are the same: (Göteborg Central, Trollhättan Central, Öxnered station, Mellerud station, Aamaal Station, Säffle station, Grums station, Kil Station, Karlstad Central , [Kristinehamn Station]) . There is in areaa Mjolby – Hallsberg – Orebro – Borlange – Falun – Gavle – Mora – Fargesta local dance floor Taag i Bergslagen - Svenska Tagkompaniet AB (TiB at departure board). Taag I Bergslagen is regional dance floor (blue R at idos.cz), however the dancing lines and balls are quite long. Distance between stops is 15- 50 km. Train is not so long, with 1-2 long wagons. It is quite easy to see through train and when conductor is coming. Conductor check tickes once 1-2 stations, usually after bigger station and conductor checks new passengers only. There is about 20-60 people in train and 5-20 passengers get in-out in station. You can try to hide between passenger, just do like you are here long time, when conductor ask, who is new. There are two toilets in train, close to begin and end. Conductor usually does not checks toilets. Toilets are free most of time. Population density is getting less after 59 degrees line and distance between villages is bigger. There is long dancing line Mjolby – Orebro – Borlange – Falun – Gavle with Taag I Bergslagen. Train goes there once a 2 hours. Mostly only TiB goes there. Most of stops are with waiting room, but not Koppaberg, Stora, don't be kicked out in winter there.

Dancing company X- Taaget is similar to Taag I Bergslagen. Trains are not so long, it should be with two toilets and toilets are free most of time. However in this area, amount of passengers is not so big, it is difficult to hide between passengers. Many stations are small without waiting room and interval to next train can be many hoour (and last train is not so late). Temperature in this area can be in winter bellow -30 or even -35 already.

Area around Stockholm is connected well. There are plenty of local trains every 30-60 min with a lot of stops, but almost no controll. Commuter trains – Pendeltaag goes from Stockohm to many directions – To Arlanda airport, to Sodertalje, and other directions. Distances between stops are only 2- 7 km and commuter trains are quite full. There is almost no ticket checking, only something like once a 10 rides. You can see quite far inside train, when conductor is coming and you can go to area, where thickets were already checked. If you are captured, then nothing happpens, maybe, you can be kicked out.

If you are captured, then nothing happens. There are gates – turnstiles from-to commuter train platforrms in Stockholm and from-to Stockholm subway too.

SJ SnabbTaag from Stockholm to Goteborg has forst stop Katrineholm or Sodertajle and SJ SnabbTaag to Karlstad or Oslo stops usually in Hal;sberg first stop after Stockholm ( It can be Katrineholm or Sodertajle too) . It is good way, how to get out from Stockholm. Journey to north is possible by X2 - SJ Snabbstaag dance floor, it is from Gavle to Sundsvall only 3 stops and next 6 stops from Sundsvall to Umeaa ( more north in Baltic coast) .

no edit summary
You can find the train connection, points for change train, and Swedish train names and dancing companies at www.sj.se , but there is not journey plan for every train (stops and time, starting and terminal station) (you can not find, where you can be kicked out and when next train will go). So PeterOB recommends to use www.idos.cz You can find there train type and company too, and all stops and time for every stop, first and last stop for every train and train change points and of course, next train, if you are kicked out from previous one. Select “Vlaky” - trains. If you want to find only direct trains without train change, choose “Pouze prima spojeni”.
There are in Sweden some local-regional dance floors with distance between stops about 5-15 km (different names at departure board and different companies, blue R trains at www.idos.cz) (Crosataagen, Pagataag, BersTaag, TiB-SJ
) , Long journey dance floors and high-speed dance floors with distance between stop 30-100 km (or up to around 300 km) – (SJ SnabbsTaag, SJ IC, SJ Nattaaget at dearture table, green X2, IC, NZ trains at www.idos.cz ) And regional dance floors with distances between stops around 10-50 km (SJ Regional, SJ Övriga in north, Oresundstaag, TiB-SJ, X-taag (X-taaget), NorrTaag, Ostgota, Lanstaag, Veolia). The long journey dance flors usually belongs to SJ dancing company (SJ Nattaag, SJ SnabbsTaag, SJ IC). There are seat reservation obligatory in SJ trains and a ticket belongs to name (if you say that you lost ticket, it is easy to look for ticket in system, include SJ Regional and SJ Övriga). You can not buy ticket inside SJ train after boarding, so if you will be captured and you will not speak Swedish, you will be kicked out without showing ID, but you can get penalty SEK 1200 (about Eur 130). You can not buy ticket inside OresundsTaag train. But tickets probably do not belongs always to name. So if you say that you have ticket in phone and battery off, or you lost ticket, you will have to get off without showing ID, if you do not speak Swedish. Penalty is DKR 750 or SEK 1000 (About EUR 105), but probality of getting penalty is small. There is usually not seat obligatory reservation in another type of trains (excluding SJ and OresundsTaag trains) and you can buy ticket inside train. But is some type of train (Veolia) you can pay only with credit card (so you just say that you have cash only and you will have to get off only). PeterOB was captured many times, including SJ Snabstaag and he was always only kicked out without penalty or showing ID. They gave echo to next trains in SJ Snabbstaag from Malmo to Stockholm. BUT if you are more north, (not close to Malmo), then some stations have not waiting room, you have to wait outside (or waiting room can be closed during night). Next train can be many hours later (there is only 1 train per day (in one direction) in few stations) and winter in Sweden is not like winter in Italy. Death during exam is possible in winter time in case tat you will fail and there is not waiting room in your station (or waiting room is closed during night). PeterOB has been finding quite hard system of train names, types and companies, and correlation with train types and types at www.idos.cz . There are many train companies in Sweden, name of train company is not always the same name like name of train type. Many long journey trains (include regionals) belongs to SJ dancing company. And at www.idos.cz there are local and regional blue trains (usually R or REG in north) and green long journey trains (X2, IC, NZ). All green trains and few blue trains belongs to SJ. In north – the regional SJ train (Övriga, blue at www.idos.cz) can be part of long-journey green train (NZ, SJ Nattaag). It is usually branch from Boden to Luleaa – short branch from long journey Stockholm-Narvik, or even between Sundsvall and Luleaa can be blue R train – SJ Övriga the same like green NZ train – SJ Nattag between Sundsvall and Boden. NZ 10093 is blue at www.idos.cz, but is long journey SJ Nattag (and SJ Ovria during part of journey).
First type is high-speed dance floor - SJ Snabbstaag. It is high-speed train with fewest stops and you can go with this train for long distances. SJ Snabbtaag has usually 5-6 wagons and second or third wagon is usually bistro wagon with small bar. First class is usually first or last wagon. Distances between stops are about 5-100 km, sometimes even more and speed is usually 140-200 kph. Conductor goes sometimes every station, but sometimes once 2-3 stations and they don't check tickets so often last 2-3 stations (especially if the train goes to Oslo or Copenhagen). They check at first all passengers and they ask only, who is new, during next checking. If there is a lot of passengers, 2-3 blue dancers check tickets together (especially first checking), but most of time only one conductor checks new passengers.
There is quite lot of passengers, so you can just sit and sleep or read a book, like you have been there before, if the first checking was done (if your appearance is not unusual). There are doors with glass between wagons and you can see, when ticket checking is coming (sit close to corridor, not close to window and watch booth sides). When checking is close in neighbour wagon, you will go to toilet for a while (you can lock or do not lock door) and wait for a while (other passengers can go to toilet too). Conductors usually do not check toilets. BUT there are waiters in bistro wagon with same clothes like conductors. Do not exchange them and do not hide in toilet from waiters, they will stay in Bistro.
If you are captured, do not tell them final destination, but the next station only, or last station, which is gone or some city with another direction and another train. If you tell them final destination, they can give echo to next train. You can not buy ticket inside train SJ SnabbTaag or SJ Regional. So you will be probably kicked out. Tickets belongs to names, so trick that you have ticket inside phone and battery out or you lost you ticket, does not work (you can try to tell common Swedish surname). Probably all stations with SJ SnabbTaag and most of stations with SJ Regional has waiting room.
for this type of dance floor is once 1 hours from Copenhagen or Malmo to Stockholm with (plus minus) 8 stops ([Copenhagen], Malmo, Lund, Hassleholm, [Älmhult station], Alvesta, Nassjo, [Tranaas station], [Mjolby], Linkoping, Norrkoping, Sodertajle, [Stockholm Flemingsberg], Stockholm Central) . Trains goes usually once a hour between Malmo and Stockholm, during weekend once a 2 hours. Only some trains stops in stations with brackets. Usualy every second train (once a 2 hours) continue to Copenhagen. Not all SJ Snabbtaag stops in Mjolby, many of them do not stops between Nassjo and Linkoping.
Only trains from Malmo 14:11 and 19:11 stops at Tranaas station instead of Mjolby. And only some trains stops at Almhult – these trains do not stop at Mjolby. Not all trains goes from or to Copenhagen (DK).
SJ Snabbstaag X2 500 X 2000 from Malmo 5:36 is best with fewest stops - (Malmö Central 5:36 BO, Lund Central 5:46 5:48 BO, Hässleholm Central 6:18, Linköping Central 8:09, Stockholm Central 9:46 GO).
If you are kicked out, you can wait for next SJ Snabbtaag, but it is better to get out from Tranas and Almhult to better station (Alvesta resp. Mjolby-Linkoping). There is once a hour (once a 2 hour in weekend) good Oresundstaag train between Malmo-Lund_Hassleholm-Alvesta-(Kalmar), you can use it for this region. And there is usually often (once a 30-60 min) Ostgotapendel train between Tranaas-Mjolby-Linkoping. Lot of local trains with lot of people goes between Linkoping-Norkoping-Stockholm. There are only few trains with lot of stops between Alvesta-Nassjo-Mjolby, it is really good idea to take SJ Snabtaag only there.
There is once a day train from Malmö to Stockholm – Veolia transoprt Sverige AB (R 9340 at ww.idos.cz like regional), train goes from Malmo 9:20 (R 3940) to Stockholm 14:31. Stops with Veolia company are: (Malmö, Lund, Eslöv station, Hässleholm, Alvesta, Nässjö, Linköping , Norrköping, Södertälje, Stockholm). Another direction - R 3941 9:14 from Stockholm to Malmö (Stockholm Central 9:14 BO, Södertälje Syd 9:33 BO, Norrköping Central 10:51, Linköping Central 11:19, Nässjö Central 12:18, Alvesta station 12:59, Hässleholm Central 13:45 GO, Eslöv station 14:10 GO, Lund Central 14:20 GO, Malmö Central 14:40 GO). This train has about 9 wagons and lot of people inside, it is quite crowded train in daytime with most of passengers, so it should be easy there (long train, lot of passengers, and conductor do not see you). This train is on departure table SJ IC or SJ Snalltaget and blue R at www.idos.cz. Between Malmo and Stockholm goes once a night
train SJ Nattaget (NZ1 at idos.cz) Between Stockholm and Malmo journey takes almost 8 hours. Stops are similar like SJ SnabbTaag, but not the same.
Usually once 2 hours SJ SnabbTaag goes from Malmö to Goteborg with 3 stops (Lund, Helsingborg, Halmstad, Goteborg) Stops are always the same. First train from Malmo 6:05 and Last train from Malmo 18:00. SJ Snabbstaag goes from Malmo (to Goteborg): 6:05, 6:59, 9:37, 11:05, 13:05, 16:00, 18:00.
First train continues two more stops to Skovde and Katrineholm – Malmo 6:05 –----- Goteborg 8:20, Skovde 9:34, Katrineholm 10:41).
From Gotebörg to Malmö SJ Snabbstaag goes: 6:40, 7:40, 10:10, 12:40, 14:40, 16:40, 18:40. Stops are the same (Göteborg Central, Halmstad Central, Helsingborg Central, Lund Central, Malmö Central). Last train goes from Hallsberg - (Hallsberg station 16:39, Skövde Central 17:19, Göteborg Central 18:25-18:40, Halmstad Central, Helsingborg Central, Lund Central, Malmö Central 20:56).
There are a lot of Oresundstaag (OTU at www.idos.cz
) trains, once a hour (once a two hours during weekend) between Goteborg and Malmo-Copenhagen, it is 12 stops between Goteborg and Malmo. You can use this train too, if you are konced out.
Bergslagstaag (blue R at idos.cz) with lot of stops between Goteborg and Karlstad buts stops between Karlstad and Stockholm are (Stockholm, [Flren Station], Katrineholm, Hallsberg , Degerforos, Kristinehamn, Karlstad).
If you are kicked out, it is usually better to wait for next train with not so many stops. Local trains goes by Lattidude 59 journey, but with plenty of small stops. There is quite good connection with long journey trains between Stockholm and Katrineholm, plenty of commuter trains between Sodertajle and Stockholm. There are some local trains between Degerfors, Kristinehamn, Karlstad usually once 1-2 hour, bust with more stops and not so many people. There is every hour local train between Karlstad and Arvika, number of stops is variable and some stops are small with not so many trains. Only few local trains with almost no people goes between Arvika (SE) and Konsvinger (NO), but there are many super small stops. In Norway – There is local train without ticket checking inside L14 between Oslo and Konsvinger once a hour.
There is once a hour high-speed dance floor SJ
Snabbtaag between Goteborg-Stockholm . First train goes quite early and latest train quite late and sometimes, SJ Snabbtaag goes more than once a hour. It is usually 0 or 2 or 3 stops between Goteborg and Stockholm and stops are very variable, every trains stops in another stops. It means, if you are kicked out, next train can be in many hours, if you are on bad stop, SJ Regional stops in all these stops, but it has much more stops. But some trains does not stop at all between Goteborg and Stockholm (about 5 trains per day) . SJ Snabshaag X2 420 X 2000 5:05 has 7 stops and only this SJ Snabbstaag stops at Falköping and Töreboda. So this train is not good. Most trains have 2-3 stops between Goteborg and Stockholm All possible stops are ([Helsingborg Central], [Halmstad Central], Göteborg Central, [Herrljunga station ],[Falköping Central] ,[Skövde Central], [Alingsaas station], [Töreboda station], [Hallsberg station], [Katrineholm] , [Södertälje Syd], Stockholm Central). Most of trains stops at Skövde, Katrineholm usual number of stops is 2-3.
There is regional dance floor SJ Regional with pretty much stops between Goteborg and Stockholm. (R at www.idos.cz, SJ Regional at departure board). It is 18 stops and duration is about 4:40. Stops are: (Göteborg Central, Alingsaas station, Vaargaarda station, Herrljunga station, Falköping Central, Skövde Central, Töreboda station, Laxaa station, Hallsberg station, Kumla Station, Örebro Södra, Örebro Central, Arboga station, Köping station, Västeraas Central, Enköping station, Baalsta station, Sundbyberg station, Stockholm Central)
. BUT R92 (SJ Regional) has much less stops. You can try go by night dance floor SJ Nattaaget between Goteborg – Stockholm - Lulea NZ 92 to Stockholm, Lulea and NZ91 from Lulea, Stockkholm to Goteborg. Some days NZ 91 and NZ 92 goes only between Lulea-Stockholm, not between Stockholm-Goteborg all days.
PeterOB have not experiences with night dance floors. There are obligatory of seat reservation like in high-speed trains. And it can be beds only and locked coupes inside.
High-speed dance floor SJ SnabbTaag goes north from Stockholm
. Journey is Stockholm-Gavle-Hudiksvall-Sundsvall-Umea . Most of JS SnabbTaag goes only between Stockholm-Sundsvall or few trains can go only between Stockholm-Hudiksvall. About 2-4 SJ SnabbTaags per day in one direction go whole dancing line Stockholm – Umeaa. Once a 2 hours goes SJ Snabbtaag Stockholm-Sundsvall. It takes about 3:34 hours Stockholm-Sundsvall and about 6:24 hours Stockholm-Umeaa. Usually one SJ Snabbtaag goes another north-west journey Stockholm -Gavle - Ljusdal – Ostersund.Stops by North dancing line SJ SnabbTaag are: (Stockholm Central, Arlanda Central, Uppsala Central, Gävle Central, Söderhamn station, Hudiksvall station, Sundsvall Central, Timraa station, Härnösand station, Kramfors, Örnsköldsvik C, Umeaa Östra station, Umeaa Central) .
If train does not go whole journey, it does not matter, every stop is good. Stops with SJ SnabbTaag are always the same. As you know – it is visible to
neighbour wagon, so you watch, when conductor is coming and you hide on toilet during checking. Toilets are not usually checked. Or conductor check only new passengers and you play, that you are here long time before.
There are two night trains
on journey Stockholm – Gavle – Sundsvall – Umea – Lulea , even with little bit less stops. Dance floor Arctic circle train from-to Kiruna, Narvik is best with fewest stops. Really a lot of trains goes between Stockholm and Gavle, it is 3 or 4 stops. There is local train X-Taaget between Gavle and Sundsvall with more stops. Norrtaag dancing company with more stops goes between Sundsvall and Umeaa. Between Umeaa and Boden goes only 3 trains pr day in one direction. One NorrTaag train and two night trains. NorrTaag has one-two extra stop close to Umeaa.
North-West journey Stockholm-Gavle-Ljusdal-Ostersund has about 1 SJ SnabbTaag per day and 1 SJ IC with more stops plus one more SJ regional with more stops and only to Ljusdal. Stops with SJ SnabbTaag are: Stops with SJ SnabbTaag: (Stockholm Central, Arlanda Central, Uppsala Central, Gävle Central, Bollnäs station, Ljusdal station, Aange station, Bräcke station, Östersund Central) .
Night trains has beds and seats too, and there is seat reservation obligatory. Night train is usually slower than daily train, because it stand longer time in some stops.
PetterOB haven't try Swedish night train yet and he do not know, how ticket checking works in night train.

This branch has no stop between Hassleholm and Lund. Third branch is from Lund to Helsingborg, Halmstad, Goteborg.
There is once a hour Oresundstaag train in every branch (once a 2 hour between Vaxjo, Kalmar and almost in all branches during weekend), it means that Oresundstaag goes once a 20 min (once a 40 min in weekend) between Lund, Malmo, Copenhagen(DK), Helsingor (DK).

All long journey-dance floors are SJ AB (SJ Regional Sundsvall – Umeaa – Luleaa) (SJ Nattaag or Nattaaget - IC trains between Luleaa – Narvik and EN, IC trains between Stockholm – Boden - Narvik) It is 3 stops Gavle-Stockholm and 3 stopc Gavle-Sundvall, 4 stops Sundvall – Umea and 4-5 more stops to Boden. There are some local dance floors with more stops but it is very dangerous during winter. There are not so many passengers in train, interval between stops is 20-100 km and interval to next train 3-6 hours (somewhere 1-2 hours), (including local trains with more stops). Some places have only 2-3 trains a day in one direction (or 1 train a day). From Umea to Boden and Kiruna only 2 very long journey trains go. Distance between stops is 50-100 km and time between stops 40-75 min. Three local trains during day go from Umea to Boden and Kiruna with distances between stops 30-70 km. Only two trains goes from Kiruna to Narvik and back (7 resp. 8 stops by Arctic Circle train and 11 stops with IC train between Kiruna and Narvik). Distance between stops is 30-70 km and there are pretty small amount of passengers, and many stops can be without waiting room. And temperature in north of Sweden can be -40 degrees Celsius during winter. Death during exam is possible in winter time, in case that you fail and waiting room is not in your stop (Or waiting room can be often close during night – security comes after some hour (10pm) or last train). Check all stops during journey for all dance floors (you can see it at www.idos.cz - select "Vlaky", for direct train without train change select “Pouze prima spojeni”). PeterOB thinks that you can't see stops during journey at Swedish railway web pages. Watch weather forecast and have good sleeping bag. Frost can come pretty fast (from -5 to -40 degrees in 1-3 days).
