Hydrail - the Future of Railway network     
Published by (International Journal of Modern Trends in Engineering and Science (IJMTES))
Authors: Sumit Kumar, Yogesh Kumar Verma.  Published December 02, 2016

Hydrail (hydrogen rail) is a zero emission free train which use on-board hydrogen to store and deliver their traction energy. This paper presents a comparison of hydrogen, diesel and electricity as a fuel in trains from where we can analyze how each transportation sector benefits in using hydrogen as its main energy carrier. The results show that locomotive transportation has the best advantage of using hydrogen as a fuel. By converting the locomotives to operate on hydrogen fuel, this would reduce the pollution generated by diesel fuels significantly with the only emissions being steam and condensed water.
