journeys should be undertaken by express only (Hurtigtog or turier-
tag, snalltagj. The mixed trains (blandede Tog, Uandade Tag) are
very slow. All the trains have smoking-carriages (BegekupS, rokkupe')
and ladies compartments (Damekupi, damkupe). The fast trains
have sleeping-carriages (Sovevogn, sofvagn), both first and second
class, and famng-atdoons (Restawationsvogn). The local and narrow-
gauge lines, both in Norway and Sweden, have usually second and
third class only.

_ Posting (Norw. Skyds, Sw. skjuts; pron. shoss or shuss). Sweden
is so well provided with railways and steamboats that travelling by
road is rare except in the Norrland, but in Norway there are vast
tracts of country accessible only by driving. The new government
roads are excellent, and the older are being improved; but some
are very rough, with many sudden ups and downs.
The Skydsstationer (pron. stashooner; which are mostly inns
also) are farm-houses whose proprietors are bound to supply horses
when required, but posting is undertaken by numerous inns or
private stations also. Fares are reckoned by Kilometres (comp. p ii)
but on some routes (as on very hilly roads) more than the actual
distance is charged for. (This is indicated in the postmaster's book
