Oresund bridge and Drogden tunnel

The plan was to travel to Goteborg by train to Malmo, where I would change trains to the one Wallander uses to visit Copenhagen.  You know, the one that disappears under water mid-crossing from Sweden to Denmark.

The first bit went to plan, however after quick wander around Malmo station (which has a moving model railway display!)


I learned that the permanent installation of this particular sign



was not accidental.  There was a signalling problem in Copenhagen, so there were no trains running from Malmo to Copenhagen Airport and on into the city centre.  Along with many others, some of whom needed to catch flights, I waited at the bus stop for the rail replacement busses.  Luckily it was sunny and right next to this:


It took quite a long time and at relatively frequent intervals people wanting to get to the airport would get together and share a taxi so as not to miss their flights.  Although waiting was eating into my ‘explore Copenhagen’ time, at least there wouldn’t be any serious or financial implications of my standing on street corner in Malmo for two or three hours.

The trip across the water was uneventful and driving into that tunnel is actually no different to any other, despite it being in the middle of the Baltic Strait.


Having been dropped at the airport by the rail replacement bus I used the Metro system to finally reach my destination: Copenhagen Station.
