On a certain day in May, we planned to transit from Stockholm to Gothenburg via train. SJ tickets for that timeframe have been open for a couple of weeks. However, when I check for tickets, every train that particular day is listed as "Not available Planned track work". I understand maintenance has to happen but we need to get to Gothenburg somehow.
Is this something that will shake out over the next two months? Will SJ get the maintenance schedule sorted and trains will be available? Is patience the key? Or, is there a chance that the track will be closed that day and we will need to figure something else out?
While I am patient, I'm exercising my brain to think of alternatives. The plan was to rent a car at Gothenburg Central Station, drive up into the Bohuslan area for a few days and return to Gothenburg. Of course, we can fly but that wouldn't be our preferred method. A bus sounds miserable. Perhaps there are other train routings that makes sense. I would like to get a car nailed down. I'm not worried about this but maybe there is a more creative, perhaps better alternative then just taking the train to Gothenburg. Badger, my friend, have you got any thoughts for us?
