Opened in 1875, this station located 10km north of Västerås was the nerve centre of the Stockholm – Västerås – Bergslagen axis until the 1990s. Passenger services ceased in 2009 after the reorganisation of the network and the opening of other lines on the outskirts, and only a maintenance and depot activity remained. However, the local authorities, and in particular the local transport committee of Västmanland County, are campaigning for its reopening to passengers, in the form of a multimodal hub, as part of a large housing development plan.
