All the vehicles have been given names of places on Lidingö.
It is a 4-axle double-ended motor car, of which 11 were built by the SL Hammarby depot in 1988-94.

The whole of the Lidingöbana rail system on the island will be closed from the summer of 2013, and is to be completely refurbished during the following 18 months. On reopening at the beginning of 2015, it will be equipped with brand new Spanish-built rolling stock, so trams of the type shown here will become, at best, museum pieces. They are, after all, over 60 years old and deserve a rest!

All the Lidingöbanan rolling stock has been lifted from its bogies and taken away by road for scrapping - December 2013.
