Hydrogen-powered train to run between San Bernardino and Redlands

Stadler and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) has unveiled a new hydrogen-powered train set to serve the area.

The Zero Emission Multiple Unit (ZEMU) arrived at San Bernardino Depot Train Station in California, US, on June 21, and will now begin final phase testing, which includes trips on the Arrow line and Metrolink system checks ahead of operations later this year.
