ViaLibre reports on start of testing of CIVIA hydrogen demonstrator train

The Spanish Railway Magazine ViaLibre reports on the recently started static tests of the FCH2RAIL hydrogen-powered demonstrator train. The bi-mode Civia train unit will be able to run with energy from the catenary on electrified sections and in hybrid mode (fuel cells and batteries) on sections without catenary. The tests are performed in CAF’s Zaragoza plant.
