Revolution VLR at Rail Live 2022
Revolution VLR has been conceived to provide a modern, attractive and cost-effective vehicle solution that will allow enhanced services on poorly served branch lines. It also facilitates the reopening of disused railway lines and encourage rail network extensions that will enhance connectivity, particularly in the context of new residential and business developments.
It has been designed primarily for short routes where operating traditional heavy rail or tram solutions is uneconomic. Combining technology from the automotive and rail sectors has produced a lightweight, energy efficient vehicle that is straightforward to operate and geared to the needs of communities.
Rail Live has been an important part of the TDI diary for several years now because of the diverse areas of the railway sector that come together. We will be bringing the Revolution very light rail vehicle to the show. It encapsulates a lot of the innovative solutions TDI has been developing for rail vehicle construction and cleaner propulsion systems. It will be great to hear the reaction from the wider industry – Paul Salkeld, Head of Design, Transport Design International
