BCIMO Dudley July 2022“Interesting and thought provoking. I am sure that the VLR-concept will be of interest not only for the UK but for many European countries in the future. As fuel prices increase the need to get this project moving from concept to operational is greater than ever before. Also medium and small cities need and deserve rail transport to provide an attractive mode of transport that can attract new riders and lessen the financial burden of the public’s travel needs.” Hans Cruz, Director at Sparvagnsstaderna BCIMO
