    The iLint is powered by huge lithium ion batteries, and these get their energy from a hydrogen fuel tank on the roof of the train.

    Germany is set to introduce the world’s first zero-emission passenger train to be powered by hydrogen.

    The Coradia iLint only emits excess steam into the atmosphere, and provides an alternative to the country’s 4,000 diesel trains.

    Hydrogen power works when hydrogen is burned with oxygen to produce huge amounts of energy, with the only by-product being water. "

    This is great but keeping in mind that hydrogen needs electricity to be produced...
