World's first hydrogen-powered trainThe French train making company, M/S Alstom introduced hydrogen-powered trains on a 100 Km distance route in northern Germany. Two trains started in this route. These trains are zero gas emission trains. They are very eco-friendly trains. The Initial cost of the engine may be more but the running cost will be less than diesel engine powered train. They are going to introduce another 21 trains by 2021. It is a good alternative to diesei trains in environment protection angle. Many other countries are also planning to introduce these trains. France government is trying to introduce these trains by 2022.
These trains will have fuel cells that produce electricity through a combination of hydrogen and oxygen. These trains can run up to 1000Km on a single tank of Hydrogen
A good development. Whether our country will also try for these trains in the near future is to be known.
