Per Arne Pettersson of LKO went to Svappavaara, part of the important Ore Line, in Northern Sweden for a VR-Track clearance project (VR Track is a large rail contractor from Finland). Per Arne surveyed 8 kilometers of track after VR-Track performed maintenance. However, to get the 8 kilometer of trackage, Per Arne Pettersson drove a total of 2,600 kilometers from the LKO garage in Falun, Sweden.
