Romania Could Buy Hydrogen-Fueled Trains

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Romania Insider.

This is the first two paragraphs.

Romania could become the first country in Central and Eastern Europe to buy hydrogen-fueled trains for passenger rail transport, according to Club Feroviar online publication quoted by Economica.net.

Five such trains might be purchased to serve the new North Railway Station – Bucharest Airport line in the country’s capital city, a route that might be opened in 2020, the source said.

It looks like the trains could be off-the-shelf Alstom Coradia iLint trains, like the one in this picture at Buxtehude.

The article says that because the trains are non-polluting, European funding might be available.
