Alstrom's Coradia iLint trains make up the world's first fully hydrogen-powered passenger train service. Currently, the trains are running on the line in Lower Saxony, Germany. The only emissions are steam and condensed water, allowing the train to operate with a low level of noise.
A win for the environment
Five of the trains began running at the end of August five trains began running, and another nine will be added in the coming months to replace 15 diesel trains on the regional route.
Alstom says the Coradia iLint has a range of 1,000 kilometers (approximately 621 miles), meaning it can run all day on the line using a single tank of hydrogen. A hydrogen filling station has been set up on the route between Cuxhaven, Bremerhaven, Bremervorde, and Buxtehude.
If these are the trains of the future, it's a bright sign for the environment, environmental activists, and all of us humans living on earth.
All of you are humans, right?
