A brand new sleeper train will let passengers travel from London to Stockholm in less than 24 hours.
The EuroNight service – expected to start running in September – will transport passengers between Sweden’s capital city and Hamburg in Germany. Combined with existing Eurostar and Deutsche Bahn services, it will cut train travel time between Stockholm and London to roughly one day.
The EuroNight train is powered by renewable energy – Swedish operator SJ only uses electricity from hydropower and wind turbines. Drivers will also use ‘freewheeling’ techniques to minimise energy use.
So all-aboard – here’s everything you need to know about the brand new train route connecting Sweden with the UK.
Operated by Swedish railway company SJ, the EuroNight train will run from Hamburg to Stockholm, stopping in Copenhagen along the way. The service covers 1080km and takes roughly 12 hours.
The train will have a variety of pricing offerings. If you’re travelling on a budget, opt for a standard seat or shared four-to-six-berth couchette. Looking to splash out? You’ll be able to book a private ‘deluxe’ sleeper compartment with its own sink, shower and toilet.
Breakfast boxes will be included for this latter option, with views out the window of the Swedish landscape.
You’ll sip your coffee with a clear conscience, too. The new Swedish train runs entirely on renewable electricity, making it an eco-conscious alternative to fuel-guzzling planes.
Drivers are also encouraged to ‘freewheel’ the traine. This involves switching off the engine and allowing the carriages to move forward using its own momentum.
Figures from the European Environment Agency show that where air travel generates 252.8 grams of carbon emissions per kilometre travelled, rail travelemits just 22.4 grams.
