Railways through Europe maps and interoperabilty


Rb3 1005 at Storlien

The swedish class Rb, divided into three subclasses Rb1 (1001 & 1002), Rb2 (1003 & 1004) and Rb3 (1005 & 1006), was comparatively rare and short-lived forerunners of the later well known Rc class. Delivered in 1962 they barely survived into the eighties.
During their last 10 years at least they were allocated to the depot in Ånge and frequently worked passengers and freight Stockholm - Östersund and beyond. Alas they were not uncommon visitors in Storlien these years, as framed on 28. June 1974.
