The railway was opened between Södertälje and Eskilstuna in 1997. It replaced an older railway from 1895 with a different more curvy route. The part between Eskilstuna and Valskog was built in 1877.
The railway Södertälje-Eskilstuna is built as a high-speed railway with gentle curves that is mainly single tracked. Today trains are allowed to run at 200 km/h, without needing tilting trains. The railway is single track with long passing loops, kind of partial double track, allowing passing with a certain speed.
The number of passengers have greatly exceeded expectations and is often used as an example of what a modern railway can accomplish
