Andreas Vogler Studio, one of the winners of Tomorrow’s Train Design Today competition, has designed a double-decker train capable of running on GB rail infrastructure.
The AeroLiner3000, which made its debut at InnoTrans in Berlin earlier this year, is set to increase capacity on Britain’s crowded network by 30%; whilst allowing for greater passenger comfort.
Andreas Vogler Studio partnered with the German Center for Aerospace. The companies used lightweight technology common in space and air travel, and the new design will reduce CO2 emissions and operating costs.
The competition offered a total of £3.5million to small firms and businesses who could provide innovative solutions to rolling stock issues, improving cost, capacity, carbon emissions and customer experience.
The competition also created a new seat design, by winner PriestmanGoode. A third winner is expected to launch their design in the new year.
