Farsta strand

The station was opened in 1901. Until 1989, it was known as Södertörns villastad. The original station building was demolished in 1975 and replaced with the current one, a typical 1970s pendeltåg station. However, until 1992 the only way to reach the station was to cross the tracks on foot.
Farsta strand has one of the three decent connections between the subway and the commuter rail in Stockholm; the other two are at Stockholms central/T-Centralen and at Sundbyberg. Sundbyberg's is the best, I think, being in tunnel and a relatively short walk; the other two involve longer walks, and the transfer here is also outdoors.
The pictures below only incidentally depict the station; they show trains arriving at and leaving the station.

Yep, the same train; I put this photo up to give a good view of the side treatment used on the cars.

This view of the same train is looking north, toward Älvsjö. That's not a camera or developing problem; some of the pendeltåg cars are this lighter blue color.

The rear end of that northbound train. That's graffiti at the top.
