Water trains on the Earth Tyrol30 May 2018 08:36
In the Austrian resort region of Tyrol, the Austrian company Zillertalbahn ordered from Stadler five hydrogen trains. On May 15, a tender for the selection of the manufacturer was held on this project. Alstom and the Chinese company also intended to participate in the cone, but the former did not make the final binding offer, and the second application was rejected.
Alstom pointed out that its current line of hydrogen trains does not have appropriate models for the narrow gauge railway, as in Zillertalbahn (760 mm).
Stadler intends to release a prototype of a hydrogen train for Zillertalbahn by 2020, and the next four convoys will be created within two years after the first.
