  1. https://www.20minutes.fr/planete/2377259-20181121-alstom-propose-train-hydrogene-regions-francaises describes Alstom’s plans for hydrogen trains in France. Alstom seems to have a serious long-term plan, aiming to replace current diesels with hydrogen when they come to the end of their life. To do that, they need tests and prototypes on a variety of lines and situations over the next few years. The government is aiming for official approval in 2022. Alstom’s ideal would be to have orders for some 30 trains in the first part of next year to accelerate development.

    According to https://toulouse.latribune.fr/innovation/recherche-et-developpement/2018-11-29/le-train-a-hydrogene-va-etre-teste-pres-de-toulouse-799182.html, the president of Occitanie Regional Council said they have ordered 16 Regiolis (which AIUI is much the same as the Coradia) from Alstom, of which 3 will be hydrogen. Somewhat bizarrely, they want to test the hydrogen trains on the Montréjeau-Luchon line, which was closed a few years ago and not reopened because of lack of demand. But she does say there are 2 or 3 other possibilities. Apparently the traction part of the iLint was built in the large Alstom plant in Tarbes.
