Hydrail: Environmentally friendly

Hydrogen Vehicle   (Public Domain)
The Coradia iLint is Germany’s “first hydrogen train.” 

Based upon the diesel-fueled Coradia Lint 54, this quiet, CO2-emission-free iLint was developed by the French company Alstom.  Company experts replaced the diesel-dependent parts
with fuel-cell technology.

The Coradia iLint can reach speeds of about 87 mph, carry hundreds of passengers, and go almost 500 miles "on a single tank of hydrogen fuel.”  The hydrogen-related equipment is “located on the roof of the train.”
