Too bad the United States, my country thumbs it’s nose at advancing train technology. I am glad to see that other countries are up to the task.
We seem to be more interested in jamming up the highways pouring out deadly fumes, or flying everywhere on airlines who make their own rules and think nothing of dragging passengers off planes and putting them in hospitals for the benefit of airline employees. Just my opinion.
Germany is set to introduce the world’s first zero-emission passenger train to be powered by hydrogen. The Coradia iLint only emits excess steam into the atmosphere, and provides an alternative to the country’s 4,000 diesel trains. Lower Saxony has already ordered 14 of them from French company Alstom, and more are likely to be seen around the country if they are judged a success, reports Die Welt.
