These trains are CO2 emission free regional trains - an alternative to diesel power. Hydrogen power works when hydrogen is burned with oxygen to produce huge amounts of energy.A hydrogen powered passenger train is currently tested in Germany.
Maglev technology was initially created by English inventor Eric Laithwaite who made the train commercially viable in Birmingham 1984. This first maglev train travelled only 42km/h covering a distance of 600m, but since its invention, some of the world's technology leaders have run with the idea.
