The Cotton Reel package

Tastes and memories from times gone by – a local food tour

The Gripenberg railway line, or Trådrullar (cotton reels) Train as it became known colloquially because its small wheels resembled cotton reels on the narrow-gauge railway, opened in 1893, but it never reached its final destination: Gripenberg. The company, Jönköpings Gripenbergs Järnvägs Aktiebolag, went bankrupt before the final stage was completed, and during the time that the railway was built, other modes of transport, such as buses, had become increasingly popular.

But, for 42 years the beautiful steam locomotives transported both goods and people from Jönköping via Giebo and Vista Kulle through Skärstadalen, Ölmstad and Bunn all the way to Vireda. It’s in memory of the narrow tracks that we’ve gathered inspiration and produce for the Trådrullar Train menu.
