US hydrogen train contract awarded



Railwaygazette.com | 14 November 2019

USA: Southern California’s San Bernardino County Transportation Authority has awarded Stadler a contract to supply a Flirt H2 hydrogen fuel cell powered multiple-unit to enter passenger service in 2024, with an option for a further four units.

Stadler said the contract announced on November 14 was ‘a major milestone in bringing zero-emission passenger rail technology to the USA’.

The Flirt H2 unit will have two cars with a total of 108 seats and ‘generous’ standing room, plus a central power module holding the fuel cells and the hydrogen tanks. It will have a maximum speed of 79 mile/h (127 km/h), the federal limit above which additional signalling systems are required.

It is to be deployed on the Redlands Passenger Rail Project, a 14·5 km passenger service which is being developed on a former Santa Fe freight railway alignment between the University of Redlands and the Metrolink commuter rail station in San Bernardino... https://www.railwaygazette.com/traction-and-rolling-stock/us-hydrogen-train-contract-awarded/55124.article

Let me see a train derailment loaded with hydrogen, somehow it don't think it'll be that controlled.

Did you know that H2 can't ignite without O2?

The bomb thing is a non-starter.

But battery fans keep regurgitating that nonsense...

5. Comrades- I have just discovered that hydrogen is a russian plot

Товарищи! Я только что обнаружил, что водород - русский сюжет



Сюжет о первом в России водородном трамвае.

Я немедленно прекращу свою водородную пропаганду. Я также принесу извинения за ложь и полуправду, которые я охотно распространял. Пожалуйста, используйте уголь и голосуйте за Трампа!
