    The rail road was build mostly for the Iron ore, the harbour in Luleaa will be close about five - six months every year because of ice, but the harbour in Norway will be open every day the year round because mostly of the warm water from the Golf stream. The rail road will also be used for the normal passengers traffic, a large numbers of tourist are travelling over the snow desert in Lappland. It will be a wonderful scenery, both in winter and summer time, but probably best in the midnight sound. The rail roads will cross the large country mils after mils, when it stopped will some very busy rail roads workers start to take care of the many packeds from Luleaa, some few Lapps, and many tourist will entre the train, and then start the travelling against the norwegian border.

    Most of the world largest Iron Ore will be in Galivare and Kiruna, it will be naturally the russian will be very interested in the rail road, and the transport over Lappland to Narvik.

    In Lappland will the swedish forces have some of their strongest position in case of war. Many airfield will be placed round the town Luleaa and Boden, and also the Swedish submarine will has some underground harbours in the mountains.
