Transport Design International is at the forefront of lightweighting technology in the road and rail industry. We coined the original name ‘very light rail’ when we started working on our first lightweight self-propelled rail vehicle, which is now recognised as the rail industry standard description for lightweight rail cars. We are proud of our part in the story of very light rail and the expertise and knowledge that we have amassed over the years and brought to the sector.
Very Light Rail in the Rail Eco-system
In the last three years, TDI has expanded our build capability (LMC) to deliver these vehicle programmes and we are currently in the process of scaling up capacity and developing the Rail Eco-system to support growth in this emerging sector.
