Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Speaking of delays, we have right now no trains on the Uppsala-Stockholm line, which includes Arlanda airport. I think a cable fell down, started a grass fire that burnt out more cables and stuff. This happened Wednesday last week and trafic is scheduled to return to normal next monday, so ten days. Exact reasons why the cable fell and why it takes so long is still unclear, but the perpetual lack of maintenance is probably part of it.

In south of Sweden we also have a strike that started today on Öresundstågen to prevent the company using temporary employments to replace normal employments. Somehow I doubt the strike will cause as much delays as the poor maintenance is doing.
