T-CENTRALEN – BLÅ LINJE

5. Take the A-train

The path in front of you leads to the red and green lines, but also to the newly built commuter rail station that was finished in 2017.

Take the “A” Train

Along the sides of the moving walkway you’ll see enamel paintings from 1984 by artist Carl Fredrik Reutersvärd.

If you look closely, you’ll see that the paintings begin with an S and an L, the letters of the logo belonging to SL, the company in charge of Stockholm’s public transportation. The artwork is, from beginning to end, a play on the parts of the letters. S and L also return at the end of the enamel painting. They’re put an end to this art experience.
