Transport: Manufacturer: Zug creates record route with hydrogen drive

World record on rails: Stadler’s hydrogen train travels 2,803 kilometers in a row – the Guinness team confirms the best performance in the USA.

A hydrogen-powered passenger train has set a long-distance record, according to Swiss manufacturer Stadler.

The company said the train traveled 2,803 kilometers without refueling or charging. The trip took place between March 20th and 22nd under the supervision of a Guinness World Records team on a test track in Pueblo in the US state of Colorado. It lasted more than 46 hours.

Stadler presented his Flirt H2 train in Berlin two years ago. It is a model for local transport for which fuel cells and hydrogen storage have been developed. Customers in California have already ordered several hydrogen trains.

Another train from the company with an alternative drive is already in the Guinness Book of Records: In December 2021, the Flirt Akku train set the longest journey of a train in pure battery operation and without charging at 224 kilometers between Berlin and Rostock-Warnemünde.
