Geocache Description:


Kymlinge är spökstationen i Stockholms tunnelbana. Stationen byggdes tillsammans med resterande delar av linje 11 till Akalla i början på 1970 talet. Man hade planer på att bebygga området runt stationen med en blandning av kontorbyggnader och bostäder eller endast ett stort antal kontorbyggnader till mestadels statliga verk. Planerna blev aldrig verklighet pga att Sundbybergs kommun, där Kymlinge ligger, ville behålla det som grönområde. Där ligger nu stationen i skogen mellan Hallonbergen och Kista, med halva perrongen i dagen och halva under jord, halvklar -- och väntar på tåg som kanske aldrig kommer att stanna.

Historier om stationen har uppkommit. Historierna sammanfaller med historierna om tunnelbanevagnarna ”C5” eller "Silverpilen" som den också fick heta, varav endast åtta levererades. C5:orna var helt silverfärgade till skillnad från från resten av vagnparken vilken har varit grön eller blå (de nya C20 är också delvis i silver, men C5:an var helt i silver.) Silverpilen sades vara spöktåget som tog personer till Kymlinge station för att aldrig mer ses igen. De sades att -- Bara de döda stiger av i Kymlinge...

ENGLISH

Kymlinge is Stockholm subway's "ghost station." It was built along with the rest of line 11 to Akalla in the early 1970s, when there were serious plans to develop the area around the station with either a mix of housing and offices, or with a very large number of offices, mostly federal agency offices. These plans never came to fruition because the municipality of Sundbyberg, where Kymlinge station is located, wanted to keep the area as green space. So there you have this station, between Hallonbergen and Kista, with its platform lying half in tunnel and half in the open, half ready for service -- but trains might never stop there.

Legends about this station have developed. They were connected with the legends about the subway cars of type "C5" or "Silverarrow", of which only eight were delivered; the C5 cars were silver, unlike the rest of the fleet, which is green and blue. (The new C20 cars are also partly silver on the outside, but the C5s were entirely silver.) The Silverarrow was said to be a ghost train that took on passengers who were never seen again, and who later got off at Kymlinge. it was said -- only the dead get off at Kymlinge...
