Swedish Railway Museum

The principal railway museum collections in Sweden have been located at Gavle since 1970, and consist of over 100 locomotives, 150 passenger carriages and several hundred wagons. The museum is administered, jointly with that at Angelsholm, by Banverket, the national railway company.

The collection at Gavle is of European significance. It includes some of the first steam locomotives to be built in Sweden, the products of works at Motala and Trollhattan, as well as some constructed in England and Germany, as well as pioneering examples of Swedish electric traction.
