Nordic Light Rail Prize goes to...

The next event will be the presentation of the Nordic Light Rail Prize. The NLRA proudly announces its decision to award the

Nordic Light Rail Prize in 1st Degree
to Mr. Thomas Lange, Stockholm, Sweden

for his lifelong involvement and commitment to tram systems and involving young people’s interest to Tramways.

The NLRA solicits contributions from companies for the prize money for the Nordic Light Rail Prize. This prize money does not go to the prize winner but becomes a scholarship grant for a student. The scholarship is an excellent incentive in getting young people interested in tramway systems and projects.

The Nordic Light Rail Prize will be awarded in Stockholm/Sweden together with a Networking Dinner later on in 2022. Thomas will be surrounded by family and friends. More information to come. Stay tuned!
