Swedish rail firm to restart Denmark services

Passengers must be at train 30 minutes before departure
The Swedish train company SJ has signed an agreement with Danish rail operator Banedanmark to resume services between the two countries from March 1.
Services with its SJ X2000 express trains between Copenhagen to Stockholm were suspended when Sweden began ID border checks – with carrier liability – on January 4.
The new agreement sees checks being carried out on a separate platform before boarding. Passengers must be at the train 30 minutes before departure, SJ says.
Mikael Damberg, Sweden’s industry minister, said he was “very pleased and delighted that SJ has now found a solution.”
