SJ Xoa5

Description
Swedish EMU operated by Statens järnvägar (SJ) between 1948 - 1986. 6 three-car units were constructed by ASEA and delivered in 1948. The design was very similar to the Xoa class delivered to the BJ in 1947, but the Xoa5 class had higher top speed - 135 km/h. The car bodies of the Xoa5 were manufactured by ASJ (AB Svenska järnvägsverkstäderna) which also made the appearance slightly different. The trains were first used in express services on the main lines. During the seventies, they were transferred to regional services in the Gothenburg area. The last units was taken out of service in 1986. #ASEA #Electric #EMU #Expresståg #Motorvagn #SJ #Statens_järnvägar #Sweden #Swedish_State_Railways #Train #Triebwagen #X5 #Xoa5
