According to Wikipedia, it belongs to the Eastern Södermanlands Railway museum in Sweden.

And here's a pic of it on the museum's website:

Obvious a stretched 1930 Volvo sedan, but a nice job done keeping the body lines intact.

Thanks Jose and Ray

Herb

According to the text, this critter's hood and frame were extended two times: Once when the 7-seater taxi was converted into a public bus, and second when they made a railcar of it  :-)
