The unprofitable trains between Norway and Sweden will continue to be run by Norwegian NSB after Linx is liquidated December 31st.
NSB will use permits belonging to Tågkompaniet for running in Sweden, and tickets will be sold in Sweden through SJ. There will be three trains weekdays Oslo-Göteborg, and on Oslo-Stockholm there will be trains Friday-Sunday. Right-wing political parties have suggested propping up the trains with tax-free shopping, or putting the trains out to competitive tender if neither SJ nor NSB want to run them. Train fans have suggested changing the Swedish end station from Stockholm to Örebro, which is closer to Oslo and does not have competing airline connections.
