City centre to city centre with free WiFi and power sockets at all seats.  Introduced in 1990, X2000 is Sweden's 200 km/h (125 mph) tilting high-speed train, operating on the Copenhagen-Malmo-Stockholm, Gothenburg-Stockholm & Stockholm-Oslo routes amongst others.  X2000s are fast, smooth and quiet, but you won't notice the train tilting unless you look carefully at the angle of the train compared to the scenery.  They were known as X2000 when they entered service, this was changed to SJ2000, but it's now reverted to X2000.  They appear on the German booking system (bahn.de) as X2.

Passport checks:  Passport checks are no longer carried out at Copenhagen before boarding, border controls now happen on board Copenhagen to Stockholm trains just after they enter Sweden.  However, you should turn up in good time at Copenhagen station because the trains to Stockholm leave from platform 26, accessed via platforms 5 & 6, a 200m walk from the station concourse.  There is no passport control when travelling in the other direction from Sweden to Copenhagen.

Covid-19 update:  At the start of the pandemic, the direct Copenhagen-Stockholm trains were cut back to run Malmo-Stockholm with a connection to/from Copenhagen by frequent Öresund local train.  However, direct Copenhagen-Stockholm trains resumed from 13 September 2021.
