Since July 2007, Upptåget, which is
equvilant to Stockholms commuter train, has stopped here on its way
to/from Gävle. The station is located about 7 minutes by train north of
Tierp, where about 50% of Upptåget turn back for Upplands Väsby.
After having got off the train, I walked
over to the main road that goes through Mehedeby which intersects with
road 76 on both sides. Here I found 838's bus stop bounding for both Gävle
and Tierp. 838 departs about every hour from Gävle and Tierp and was a
very (and still is for some) important link for commuters between
A few minutes later, 838 bounding for Gävle
went passed by me. It was scheduled to come at 16:20, but it came with a
few minutes delay, which is very, very rare in UL (unlike SL...).
Now that I've photographed 16:20 departure,
I headed back to the railway station. Here we see that they showed enough
care and actually put up a sign telling people that the train station is
The 838 bounding for Tierp arrived before I
managed to walk down to the bus station and therefore I took a picture
here, the road that leads to the train station.
The 838 made its short stop at the bus stop
while Swebus 5007, went as 836 to Tierp via Söderfors, another village
close to Tierp. Now I had one more bus to photograph before today's work
And here it comes! 839 is a direct bus route
that goes between Gävle and Tierp. It takes the E4 the whole way, except
for the extra round to Mehedeby as seen here; it was a very important
commuter bus route before Upptåget was extended to Gävle.
Finally, we have our last departure of the
day from this bus stop. 836 to Tierp via Södefors; the driver has seen
both the 838 and 839 passing by so he could drive forward and let the
passengers from those buses get on.
A moment later, peace had taken over and the
last bus departure from this stop has passed by. Now we'll have to wait
until next day morning before the same actions will occur, except in the
opposite directions, i.e. 836 from Tierp will have connections to 838 and
839 bounding for Gävle, for the commuters.
Now that all the buses have left, I focused
more on the station since I still had some time before my train was going
A clever sign here telling you where the trains go to, but a few arrows
wouldn't really hurt!
There might not be many buses departure from
Mehedeby bussplan, but the trains still keep quite an adequate intervall
to/from Tierp and Gävle.
As you could see, the station is still
pretty clean and no one has yet sprayed any graffitti on the glasses etc.
Here comes my train that would take me back
to Upplands Väsby, I thought at least. What happened along the way, will
remain a mystery until the day when I want to write a documentary about
