Starting as an academic event back in May 2005 in Charlotte, NC (US) hydrail - powering trains with hydrogen - derived to an upcoming technology which will replace diesel. Since September 2018 a first line in Northern Germany uses hydrail-railcars in scheduled daily services. Passengers and residents love the silence and the emission free rides. At RAILLIVE 2019 in Birmingham (19th & 20th of June 2019) three manufacturers will present their hydrail railcars.

All this shows: hydrail becomes alive! The 14th International Hydrail Conference will celebrate this with a special workshop in Hamburg on 20th of June 2019 with an excursion to the township of Bremervörde where ALSTOM operates it's hydrail iLINT railcars. This is your chance for ride into future.
