USA: Representatives from the Guinness World Records witnessed the record at the test track in Pueblo, US.

According to the Swiss manufacturer, its FLIRT H2 train travelled for more than 46 hours without refuelling at an average speed of 60 km/h.

Unlike other manufacturers, Stadler places fuel cells and a hydrogen tank in a tender. It presented the hydrogen train at the InnoTrans 2022 and has signed contracts to supply such rolling stock to the USA and Italy.
