    Our Trains

    Our trains are electrical multiple units (EMU) called X31K in Sweden and ET in Denmark. 108 out of a total of 111 trains are used in the Öresundståg system.

    The trains were manufactured by today's Bombardier and also go under the product name Contessa. They have a top speed of 180 kmh.


    Each train set consists of three couples carriages numbered 11–14, with a total of 229 seats available. When necessary, up to three train sets can be coupled—the additional carriages being numbered 21–24 and 31–34 and the capacity totaling 687 seats.


    In all Öresundståg you can travel in 1st Class or 2nd Class. In 2nd Class, there is a Quiet Zone for those wishing some peace and quiet, and an Animals Allowed section if you're traveling with your pets.


    At each group of seats there are 220 V AC electrical outlets. Unfortunately, we cannot at the present time guarantee that there will be wireless internet onboard. Read more about internet onboard and the enhanced telephone coverage.


    The middle carriage in each train set has bookable wheelchair seats and a handicap accessible bathroom. Read more about the accessiblity onboard and traveling with a disability-


    On some lines there is a catering trolley onboard. From the trolley you can buy sandwiches, sallads, warm and cold beverages and other goodies. We are currently in the process of changing suppliers, which may mean a termporarily limited assortment. Also, we cannot guarantee that the service will be available on all departures. Our ambition is to be able to offer the full assortment as soon as possible.
