. . . but Scandinavia's train is a strain

Letters

Like Steve Turner I too travelled over the 0resund Crossing, but I journeyed from Sweden and by train.

Malmo Airport bus drops you right outside Malmo Station ticket office. Great.

Unfortunately the Copenhagen departures desk is at the far end of platform nine. Having trekked down there and brought the reasonably priced ticket, you then have to travel all the way back, because the train leaves from platform six.

Copenhagen Station arrangements are even worse.

0resund trains run into a special platform, leaving the front of the very long and very full train 300m from the main Copenhagen concourse, from where all connecting trains still leave.

The 0resund platform has no roof and no seats. Rain or shine, fit or disabled, tourist with luggage or mum with kids and pushchair, all are required to queue to go through a two person barrier before embarking on a 250m trek up two flights of stairs, across a main road and down two more flights to get to the station proper.
