We checked out in good time to get the 0815 train to Copenhagen . It was delayed following a train into the tunnel to Zealand. We had a wait of over an hour in the first class lounge in Copenhagen - very pleasant. We had reserved seats on the SJ train X2000 which left 12 minutes late and lost our path - signal problems and left Copenhagen under what seemed like a 564 order.

We were about 25 minutes late into Alvesta where SJ had held our train to Kalmar. This was very much a local train made up of old cars that bounced around on the curves. However, the first class was fine and we were in no hurry anyway. At a place in the bush it was announced that we were going to wait 20 minutes for a train coming in from Kalmar. Lots of people piled off for a smoke break and I walked up to take a picture of the engine.

We finished up almost 30 minutes late but the hotel is only a couple of minutes walk from the station.
This evening we had a walk around the town and ate fish and chips with a local beer. The beer was pretty good but quite heavily hopped.
