Luggage & Facilities
Passengers may bring as much luggage with them as they like, so long as they can manage getting it on board themselves. Storage areas can be found at either end of each carriage, and above the seats.
All SJ 2000 trains offer low-speed internet on-board. Access can be bought in advance or at the bistro on-board. First class passengers receive internet access for free (use the order number on your ticket to log in). Other passengers may purchase internet access at the following rates:
|30 minutes||39 SEK|
|Whole Journey||99 SEK|
|Monthly Pass||599 SEK|
|Annual Pass||5990 SEK|
At weekends and on holidays, the price is reduced to 19 SEK for 30 minutes, or 49 SEK for the whole journey.
Food & Drink
Depending on the route in operation, trains will either have their own bistro carriage or a refreshments counter. Both serve salads, sandwiches and hot meals. The bistro also sells newspaprers and business magazines. First class passengers can choose to pay a supplement (129 SEK) to receive a three course meal.
SJ 2000 trains are staffed, and have audio induction loops and accessible WCs. Wheelchair lifts are available to help passengers get onboard, as there are a small number of steps up to each carriage from platform level.
Travelling with Pets
Up to two pets may travel with each passenger, as long as they can fit within your seating space. Larger animals may require an extra ticket to be purchased (same price as the reservation fee for a youth ticket). Animals are only permitted in designated sections of Standard Class.
