What’s the latest magnificent American invention? Hydrogen fuel cell powered locomotives that may lead the way to less or even no dependence on fossil fuel in America.
The world’s first fully operational fuel cell switcher train was introduced today in Topeka,Kansas! Who says that America still can’t lead the way?Here’s more on this exciting invention from Hydrogen Cars & Vehicles:
“Back in January 2008, I had talked about BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corporation), Vehicle Projects and the U. S. Army working on a hydrogen fuel cell powered train that would be rolling out soon. Well that day has come at the Topeka, Kansas System Maintenance Terminal.
The world’s first fully operational fuel cell switcher train was introduced by Senator Sam Brownback, Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and other players interested in alternative fuels and air quality. This hydrogen train can also be used as a power generator in disaster areas if needed.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.
