Bio-Coal Trials Show Promise

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Engineer.

These were the first two paragraphs.

Norfolk’s Bure Valley Railway (BVR) has held an extensive trial of bio-coal as the heritage rail sector looks towards a carbon-free future.

The event, which took place in June, was the result of cooperation between members of the Advanced Steam Traction Trust (ASTT), Bure and the Heritage Railway Association.

It probably makes sense to experiment with steam locomotives and fuels that create less carbon dioxide emissions.

  1. Well done them for finding an alternative to their usual coal. I had to laugh at the references to a Bio-Coal, I thought that the origin stuff albeit ancient was a biological product.

  2. I can see the day, when Extinction Rebellion or one of their offshoots protest at the Bluebell Railway.
