the Skara-Kinnekulle-Vänern Railway (SKWJ) was opened. The line was one of many narrow-gauge railways in Västra Götaland established to connect smaller towns with the rest of the country through the Western Main Line. Limestone from Kinnekulle was transported southward on the SKWJ to Skara, from where it continued on the LSSJ (Lidköping-Skara-Stenstorps Railway) to Stenstorp and the Western Main Line. For nearly 100 years, both goods and passengers traveled along this route before the last freight traffic between Skara and Götene was discontinued in 1984.
Today, the Skara-Lundsbrunn stretch is preserved as a museum railway. Every year, thousands of passengers embark on nostalgic journeys aboard steam trains and railbuses.
