Jädraås is situated in

the Iron Land of Gästrikland

(a province 200 km north of Stockholm)

– a part of Sweden

where iron mines and blast furnaces

once gave life and activity to the district.

In the year 1881 the railway was connected to the village.

About 6 kilometres of the old narrow gauge track is still left,

but now as the museum society Jädraås – Tallås Railway, JTJ,

with train traffic as it looked like a hundred years ago.
