Electricity disruptions at a Stockholm rail yard operated by SJ caused significant disruptions, including delays and cancelations, to long-distance and inter-city commuter rail service across Sweden on Tuesday, March 12. At least six trains operated by SJ on the Stockholm-Uppsala route were canceled on Tuesday morning, while trains to other cities, including Gothenburg, Malmö, Karlstad, Norrköping, and Falun, saw reduced service. According to the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket), rail service will remain disrupted through Tuesday evening. Stockholm's Storstockholms Lokaltrafik (SL) local public transport system was not affected by the incident. Lingering delays and cancelations are to be expected across the rail network over the coming hours.
Individuals in Sweden traveling on SJ rail lines are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm train reservations, budget additional time to reach their destinations, and seek alternative modes of transportation, if necessary. Refer to the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) website for real-time updates on train delays and cancelations.
