Hydrogen trains enter regular service
The world's first train powered by hydrogen officially started picking up passengers in Germany last Monday.
The train cost $86 million, according to a report by Fuel Cell Works, and will begin by transporting passengers between two stops just outside of Hamburg.
Fuel Cell Works says initial service on the train is "preliminary," and older diesel-fueled trains will serve as a backup in case there are adjustments needed in the first few months of service.
Alstom, the company that developed the trains, says that the emission-free trains represent "a true alternative to diesel power."
