The world’s first hydrogen passenger train departed from Prague
Hydrogen trains could start running on the Czech railways in about five years. Changes in legislation and the development of domestic infrastructure will be key to their wider use. The costs for them would not be too different from the current trains, they said on 17.5. 2022 at the presentation of the Coradia iLint hydrogen train Martin Bělčík, head of the Railway Research Institute, and Daniel Kurucz, head of the Alstom train manufacturer. Hydrogen-powered trains are one of the ecological variants of future operation, especially on regional railways.
