SJ X3000 Trains

The X3000 is SJ's successors of the classic, but sometimes problematic X2000 train. The train, manufactured by Bombardier, was introduced on the Swedish market in 2012. On the X3000 there is an improved protection from snow and ice, compared to the X2000, thus increasing operational safety during winter time. The X3000 can run at 250 km/h (155 mph), but SJ does not run faster than 200 km/h (124 mph) for various reasons. However, they benefit from the high acceleration capacity of the train.
