Railpool-owned Bo-Bo electric locomotive operated by CFL Cargo, photographed on 25 June 2016, at the Skandiahamn marshalling yard in Gothenburg, Sweden. Built by Bombardier, Kassel, Germany in 2011. See also picture 9181 and 24641.
In early 2012 CFL Cargo, the freight operator from Luxembourg, bought a 51% share in Midcargo from Svensk Tågkraft AB and renamed the company into CFL Cargo Sverige AB. Midcargo was the follow-up of BK Tåg Sverige AB after the bankrupcy of Inlandsgods that had bought all the shares. BK Tåg was one of the first private operators in Sweden. They started with passenger trains, but later freight trains followed.
This is typical of the convoluted history of many Swedish companies, with ownership often difficult to determine. All perfectly legal, of course, but almost impenetrable to outsiders.
