    The Swedish railcar that I was asking about has now been moved to the Nene Valley Railway. An article about the move is in todays Hartlepool Mail.

    On a plane somewhere at 35,000
    It was advertised on the Internet and brought to England by low loader. Its actually not that expensive.

    There are a number of privately owned locomotives/train sets in Sweden that are used on the main line from time to time.

    Depends on what you mean by internet as some would argue that we've had it since the 70s.
