Darren Smith, Commercial Director of Transport Design International and Tim Burleigh, Head of External Relations at Eversholt Rail recently attended Mainspring’s European Light Rail Congress 2023.

As proud sponsors of the event we were excited to present Revolution VLR: The future is Very Light Rail. This was followed by a panel discussion on “Game changing technology: What do we need to take VLR to the next level?” alongside Steve Jasper, Director, Pre Metro.

All who attended the European Light Rail Congress brought insightful questions and contributed to the conversation of Very Light Rail. If you missed our presentation or would like to know more about Revolution VLR, you can learn more below.
