Description:
The Haparanda Line () is a long railway line between Boden and Haparanda in Sweden. A long branch from Morjärv to Kalix is also considered part of the line, as is the long section from Haparanda to Torneå, which is on the Finland–Sweden border. The line is the only Swedish railway to the Finnish border. The single track line is used exclusively by freight trains. Passengers must use buses from Luleå to the Haparanda bus station, where there are bus connections to Kemi. Interrail tickets are valid on these buses.

Since 2007, the Swedish Transport Administration, which owns the line, is upgrading the line from Buddbyn to Morjärv and Kalix, and building an alternate route from Kalix to Haparanda, to be finished in 2012. The upgrade will involve electrification; Boden-Kalix is expected to be electrified by November 2011, and electrification will reach Haparanda by February 2012. The line connects with the Main Line Through Upper Norrland at Boden Central Station.

Route

The line from Boden to Haparanda/Karlsborgsbruk is single track and not electrified, and there is no automatic train control system installed. Apart from Boden Central Station including Buddbyn Station, the only station equipped with centralized traffic control is the Avafors Station, which is controlled remotely from Luleå Central Station. Stations at Morjärv and Haparanda are manned locally when traffic so requires.
