Slussen harbourside

I had intended to take a boat ride to Vaxholm, but had managed to get myself confused about where to catch it - I first went to the Djurgården ferry jetty. By the time I arrived at the right place I could see what I thought might be the boat I wanted just getting ready to leave. It was one of those moments where if I knew it was the right boat I could have run for it. As it was I thought it wouldn't be too long before the next one. Little did I know it would be three and a half hours before that.

So I went to explore the harbourside on the north of Södermalm. While I was there I found a bizarre little railway line that headed along the base of the cliff parallel to the road, then disappeared into a tunnel and thought that might be an interesting substitute for a boat journey.
