There are three or four departures every day from Arlanda C to Linkoping. If you take the express train to Stockholm (3-6 departures every hour) you have another twenty or so trains to Linkoping to choose from. Travel time is, no matter if you go direct from Arlanda or through Stockholm, about two and a half hours.
Please note that the regular trains and airport express trains leave from different platforms at Arlanda Airport.
There���s a timetable in English at www.resplus.se
As a complement to Odenplan's post I can tell you this.
The regular fare is between SEK 250 and SEK 750 depending on when you travel and if you choose a high-speed (X2000) or an inter-city train.
If you book a few weeks in advance your are able to get cheaper "just nu"-prices. Tickets can be bought through www.sj.se with major creditcards. You are then able to pick up your ticket in a machine at the station.
NB. The fare for the Arlanda Express train from the airport to the city is SEK 180 one-way. In some of the connections sold on www.sj.se Arlanda Express is included in the price though. - If you are on a tight budget you might want to go by airport bus to the city and change to train there. The bus price is SEK 90 one way.
Also, there is a bus from Stockholm downtown to Linkoping. There is one departure every two hours or so. The busride is 2,5-3 hours and the price is SEK 190. There is a seating guarantee for the bus. Thus, you do not have to reserve a ticket in advande. CF. www.swebusexpress.se
If you tell us more about dates and times for you journey and your budget we might be able to find you a good solution.
Thanks a lot guys! You've helped this foreign traveller to go from Stockholm to Linchoping!
Long live google and the friendly people on the web ;-)
thanks a lot for your guidance you were very instructive but please tell me something more .
How I will take my tickets if i pay them with credit card from Greece
Thanks you in advance
Windsurfernikos, I guess you mean train tickets.
If you buy ordinary train tickets by credit card on internet, you get a control number. You enter this control number in ticketing mashines located in the train terminals in Sweden. Out comes your ticket(s). The mashines are light blue. Note that in Arlanda airport there are three terminals for train located underground the flight terminals. One centrally located is for ordinary train, the other two in each end of the airport is for Arlanda Express train only to Stockholm Central station.
thanks a lot for your help .
I don't know if i become annoying but something last
