Bergslagernas Järnvägar (Railways), but the Xoa5 class had a higher top speed of 135 km/h. The car bodies of the Xoa5 were manufactured by ASJ (AB Svenska Järnvägsverkstäderna) which also made the appearance slightly different. The trains were first used in express services on the main lines. During the 1970s, they were transferred to regional services in the Goteborg area. The last set was withdrawn from service in 1986. Axle arrangement: 2'-Bo '+ 2'-2' + Bo-'2; power output: 1,000 kW.
