The Bergslagen line’s 125th anniversary was celebrated in October 2004 with trains between Gothenburg and Åmål witch was organized by the societies BJs and JÅÅJ. Three steam locos were in service during the day and pulled the anniversary train together a part of the distance.

Sold out!

Framed by the best autumn weather the Bergslagen line’s 125th anniversary were celebrated. The celebration was concentrated to the south part of the Bergslagen line between Åmål and Gothenburg and special trains were operated by BJs and JÅÅJ.

It was a popular festival with speeches and music at the stations where the anniversary train stopped. In Nygård they symbolically opened the double track construction Trollhättan–Gothenburg. By the Fredrik firs north of Prässebo they uncovered a memorial plaque and the site was declared as an official memorial site from the construction of The Bergslagen line.

In the film we follow BJs’ train from Gothenburg. We meet JÅÅJ’s train in Trollhättan and then the trains are put together and continue towards Åmål. The anniversary train then has three steam locos and 13 cars.

The DVD is subtitled in Swedish and English. Swedish narration, cover and menus. Both subtitles and narration can be switched on and off independently.

Region-free DVD-R. Playable in computers and PAL-compatible DVD-players world-wide.
