for details of these locomotives. Other types operated by CFL Cargo are: MA, TMX, TMY, RC and T43.
CFL Cargo originated from BK Tåg AB, which in 1990 – in connection with the deregulation of the railway market in Sweden – became the first privately owned train company to take over traffic from SJ (Swedish State Railways) and to start operating it independently.
In the 1990s, the company became MidCargo and its main traffic was the first private freight train shuttle to the Gothenburg Harbour (Skandiahamnen, as seen here). The project was initiated in 1998 together with Vänerexpressen and the Karlstad and Gothenburg harbours. The traffic has now been running continuously for over fifteen years and is being developed further by all parties.
