Venerable Dm3 1220 heads out of Kiruna in Sweden's Arctic Circle with a load of premium-grade iron ore bound for the Norwegian port of Narvik. The train will make a spectacular journey past frozen lakes, huge icy mountains before clinging to a cliff above deep fjords on its descent to the port. Taken in almost darkness at 13:57 with the temp a freezing -15C. I walked a few kms out of town from the station in the background to the first road overpass to get this photo - the walk kept me warm, although the wait was rather uncomfortable!
