Hydrogen trains, which convert hydrogen into electric energy in fuel cells, are an alternative to diesel trains where electrification has not yet taken place or where the number of trains is sufficiently low / their speed is sufficiently low to make electrification not viable. Hydrogen trains have the advantage over diesel that they are emission-free at the point of use.
