Nockebybanan is a tram line between Nockebymarker and Alvik in the western suburbs of Stockholmmarker, Swedenmarker. The long line is part of the Storstockholms Lokaltrafik public transport network, and connects with the Stockholm Metro and Tvärbanan light rail at Alvik. Nockebybanan, also known as line 12, is operated by Veolia Transport.

History

The first part of the current line to Alléparken was opened in 1914. The line was then gradually extended, and at its greatest extent, it ran from Nockeby to Tegelbacken in central Stockholm. Since the opening of the western Stockholm Metro green lines in 1952, the line has terminated at Alvik.

Nockebybanan and the Lidingöbanan were the only tram lines in the Stockholm region not to be withdrawn in conjunction with the switch to right-hand traffic in 1967. It was run with bidirectional trams with doors on both sides (remains from the trams used when the metro network was only partially built). Therefore it was easy to switch side. The trams have (ever since) to change to left-hand traffic near Alvik since this station was built for left-hand traffic.

The line was out of service for a year from June 1997 to June 1998 while it underwent significant renovation and modification to accommodate the new Flexity Swift (A32) trams.
