Linx AB was a joint venture between the Swedish railway, SJ, and the Norwegian railway NSB. It operated high speed trains on the routes Stockholm C - Oslo S and Oslo S - Göteborg C - København H using Swedish X2 trains. The service pioneered Wi-Fi Internet access.

It was wound up in 2004 due to competition from low-fares airlines and because tracks in Norway did not allow high enough speeds.[1]. The operations in Sweden were continued, while the cross border operation ceased. NSB extended three of its daily regional trains on Østfoldbanen to Gothenburg after Linx closed down. The Oslo - Stockholm route will reopen in 2007 when SJ will start operating the service.
