Trolley Museum

Here you can dream yourself away to bygone times in Sweden's largest collection of Carriages and Saddles!

When you walk among wagons and sleds, you know the wing of history. Here are 30's beautiful sledges to view, most work cars of different varieties as well as a whole seal and saddle chamber. A few hours here fly easily.

There is everything from a simple ox-drawn carriage to the King's and nobility's fine cars. Here you can see Gustav the V car, Greve Hamilton's coupe, Florence Stephens Kalesch with feed tire and original harness from 1891, Grand Hotell's exclusive Victoria car. Countess Sparres 5 glass trolley. mm

Fuel peat museum

The biggest event in Komløta's history would probably be the burnt peat mining at Landtmossen during the 1st World War. About this, we have built up a museum with a 20 meter long model track with the landmass at one end - the Linbanan - and Fristad's station community inthe other end. We have salvaged a peat plant from the moss in Smålands Taberg, we have been looking up and bought the world's only preserved Varrantlok, which is exactly what went on Landtmossen.

Now there is also a narrow-gauge museum railroad of 1 km, which runs with torflak and wagons every Sunday between kl. 11 - 16, during June, July and August.

Coffee and dip as well as sausage and brdö that can be grilled over open fire yesterday in the ticket price.

Then you can take a walk in the beautiful garden or play a game of boules.

Maybe, but not for sure, the horse also wants to pull the tram a lap sometimes
