The Stations of Uppsala, Sweden
Author: GPutz

Uppsala, Sweden, is about 40 milees north of Stockholm.  It has a large university where, among many other things, Carl Linnaeus organized biology about 300 years ago.  It also has three railroad stations:

1. Old Uppsala Central, now mostly a restaurant,

2. New Uppsala Central, built about 2011, has fast food and shops as well as ticket sales,

3 Uppsala Östra, also built in 2011, home of the Lennakatten or Upsala-Lenna (meter gauge) Heritage Railway, see: http://www.lennakatten.se/en/

These pictures were taken 05.06.2012, Sweden Day.

My friend and guide here, and TO member, Tom Werner, told me that the bridge over a highway built about 2010 to allow the Lennakatten access to the station cost a million dollars.

Thanks, Tom.  Is that your bicycle at the water column?  Gerry
