Introduced in 1990, X2000 is Sweden's 200 km/h (125 mph) tilting high-speed train, run by SJ (Swedish railways) and operating on the Copenhagen-Malmo-Stockholm, Gothenburg-Stockholm & Stockholm-Oslo routes amongst others.  X2000s are fast, smooth & quiet, you won't notice the train tilting unless you look carefully at the angle of the train compared to the scenery.  Initially known as X2000, this was later changed to SJ2000, then back to X2000.  They appear on the German booking system (bahn.de) as X2.

Passport checks:  There are now no border controls in either direction between Denmark & Sweden as they are both in the Schengen area, but spot checks are sometimes made.

Departures from Copenhagen:  You should turn up in good time at Copenhagen station because the trains to Stockholm often leave from platform 26, accessed via platforms 5 & 6, a 250m walk from the station concourse.
