Historic milestones



Statens Järnvägar, SJ, was founded. The first train departed from Gothenburg Central Station to Jonsered. On arrival, exhilarated passengers reported how they had been "hurled forward" at 30 kilometers per hour.


Sweden’s first dining carriage was introduced. Passengers on the Uppsala–Gävle route were the first to try the new service.


Launch of the X 2000 high-speed train.


SJ tickets are bookable online.


SJ introduces dynamic pricing in the same manner as low-cost airlines.


Hip hip hooray! On 1 December, SJ celebrated 160 years. Rail travel is a great modern oldie that never stops renewing itself.
