Swedish term or phrase: Insatståg
I believe that it describes a train/rail service introduced when needed at peak times etc but cannot think what this would be called in English!

English translation:extra train
Explanation:
'Extra train' seems to be used, plain and simple.

There are also hits for 'supplementrary train', which sounds a little more 'official' or planned and specific.
