THIS IS NÄSSJÖ
Nässjö has for many years been an important railway junction. The turning point was the construction of the Swedish Railway System. The southern main line railway, finished in 1864, and passed through Nässjö. As the Swedish railway system grew bigger and Nässjö, due to its geographical location in the country, became an important junction. Today Nässjö is the only Swedish junction where railways in six different directions meet.
As a result, industries moved to Nässjö, and the population increased. Important industries were wood industries due to the forests that covered the province area Småland.
In the 40’s Nässjö started the of production of electrical equipments. The company Eldon AB was for many years the largest industry.
Since Nässjö has been a major railway junction for long time, it is no wonder that the indoor arena for bandy is called “Stinsen Arena”. Translated into English it would be “Stationmaster Arena”.
