Uppsala Östra

Uppsala Central, on the left, has 8 platforms whilst Uppsala Östra, on the right, has 2 platforms. When the station was redeveloped to become Resecentrum, Östra station was moved into the same location; it used to be west of Central. The name Östra (east) seems to refer to the direction to and from which trains travelled rather than the location of the station. The line used to run from Uppsala towards the east coast at Norrtälje.
The shot shows a standard gauge double decker train and a narrow gauge (891mm) steam-hauled special wedding train with two brake vans at the front of 3rd Class coaches. The steam loco is Långshyttan from 1897 built at Motala Verskstad.
