Remarks & Notes 
Help from the "Great Northern Railway" (GNR)! The third locomotive in the consist, electric Da 888 of the Swedish Railwaymuseum, had problem with battery power and wasn't able to pull anymore from Hällefors. The very long and heavy train with 14 swiss, german and swedish passenger cars and a freight car was on the way from Aengelholm to Gävle, diverted from Herrljunga via Öxnered-Kil-Borlänge-Falun because of flooding near Hallsberg. Help came in form of the 1433 kW sixaxle (A1A A1A) General Motors powered former danish MY 1108, built in 1956 by NOHAB in Trollhätten, Sweden, now # TMY 106, running for the swedish Tågåkeriet i Bergslagen AB (Tågab) and with this ""GNR" paint scheme since 1999 for the film "Dancer in the dark" of Lars von Trier. The TMY 106 pulled the train from Hällefors to Falun, together with the electric Du 109 from 1925.
