    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/arkland_swe] Thanks for posting the link! It's nice to see that the station building is still there. According to an article on Swedish Wikipedia, the waiting hall in the building is closed down - but the railway station is still in use! Wikipedia also tells that Dingle station (from 1903) was the first central station for regional buses in the province of Bohuslän. /Anna B.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Very nice to see the whole station building as well as the platform in the photo you posted! (Do you perhaps know its precise age?) Thanks a lot for showing us! ...and I think I recognize one of the buses. /Anna B.

    On Ahk:s Mässing & nickelgruppens site they say about 1927. The bus at right in front row in your photo, an American 1923 Garford, is also seen in the older photo. In front of it a Scania-Vabis from the late 20s.
