Heads Or Tails Rules

This is an oddly ghost story from real life in Stockholm. There is a train station in the woods in Kymlinge, behind high barbed-wired fences on the way of the subway line to Kista.

A subway station that never have been used in real life – despite the fact that it has been there since the sixties! It is nearly finished, it’s just missing the last touch of an escalator and a ticket stand.

It’s very desolated and spooky quiet – until the train is rushing by on it’s way to Kista, known as Stockholm’s Silicon valley, a business area in the suburbs of the capital city.

Imagine the screech in the rails, hair raising scary ghostly sounds in the tunnels giving you goose pimples all over, odd noises, the ice chilly wind from the train and the peoples (?) dead faces in the train….

You start to feel the chill very close to you… creeping up your legs…. Booo!

The legend is telling that there has been a ghost train called the Silver Arrow (Silverpilen) that did stop in Kymlinge, but only to let off the dead….

The ones that get on this train never get off alive… *mwuuuuahhhaaaa*

Some people even claim that there has been a young women getting on this train in the middle of the night and then she did disappear – until they found her dead in the woods nearby the station…

The truth or not?

Well, take a ride on the subway to Kista when it’s dark if you ever come to Stockholm, but I would be verrrry observant when going into the woods before arriving to Kista if I were you!

You never know what you’re going to see…. or if you will make it alive… *mwuuuuahhhaaaa*

Yes, I have been on the subway to Kista, many times, but not in the middle of the night. When you pass there it’s no problem to get that creepy feeling that it could happen now too! People are feeling uncomfortable and looking the other way while passing this deserted ghost station.

They have tried to explain it with the fact that they did begun to test drive an aluminium colored train in 1975, which switches gave those screeching ghostly sounds in the tunnels.

- but do we really believe that? *ghostly giggles*

So, what’s the story behind the unused station then?

Well, this particular subway line were shorter at the beginning, in the mid seventies they extended it to Kista and it were consecrated in June 1977.

When they built it they had plans to build up a big office- and apartment area there too, but there were too many protests from the people around there. They wanted to keep it as a recreation area and protect a certain fish specie in the stream running through there.

However, they have recently taken up that plans and are beginning to build it up, so maybe they will open up that ghost station soon. I really do hope so, because it feel wrong to not use it when it’s there. (OK, OK, I admit it, that would scare the ghosts away!)

What, no photos of the station? Well, you didn’t really think that I dared to go there to shoot some photos did you?

*nervous giggles*

    TorAa said:

    Oooha, at last I know why my Swedish collegues allways told me to go to Kista by Taxi. *cause of the Ghost station and that frightful forest as well- scary, scary.

    PS. Did you know we have Ghoststations in Oslo as well. The construction on one of them startet as long back as in the 1920′ies. And now they have talked about to finnish the work for 20 years.
    Anotherone – on the same line, was closed down about 20 years ago. Two Ghost stations on the same track. It’s ghostly.
