Severn Lamb are extremely proud to announce that they have been presented with the "New to Market Award" at the International Trade's Business Awards. The awards took place at the British Embassy in Lisbon, Portugal last week and the award was presented by Her Majesty's Ambassador to Portugal, Chris Sainty.
Severn Lamb provides world class design and manufacturing in the light urban, leisure and resort transportation environments. They were presented the award for their inputs and work on the 'TUA Express' steam outline locomotive for Duoro Azul Group in Portugal. The TUA Express was designed to operate on the 120 year old Tua Line in the spectacular Douro Azul in Northern Portugal.
The TAU Express steam outline locomotive was designed with the intention of carrying passengers across a breathtakingly beautiful one metre gauge, 25km Tua Line at a maximum speed of 25kph. The TAU Express holds four enclosed passenger coaches that can accommodate up to 56 people in each coach. These state-of-the-art coaches were designed to accommodate the passengers in every way possible with coach to coach walk ways, a centralised heat and cooling system to moderate temperature regulation and in-seat USB charge points. Outside the basics, the Tau Express also offers its passengers a full-featured galley coach with kitchen, bar, toilets and a lounge area. To finish it off, the Express as a whole has extremely fine period detailing to create an aesthetically visual treat for people looking from the outside, as well as for the passengers on board.
The New to Market Award highlights the innovative and ambitious international endeavours being undertaken by Severn Lamb. Everyone involved has something to be proud of and Her Majesty's Ambassador to Portugal, Chris Sainty, said it best, “The objective of this evening is to hand out awards to very, very special people”.
