      Hydrogen offers no alternative to main line
      electrification

      Interest in fuel cells to power trains has been
      growing, with Japan's Railway Technical Research
      Institute planning a prototype by 2010. Political
      leaders talk of the hydrogen economy eliminating local
      pollution and mitigating climate change, and prototype
      buses and cars already exist. Within the rail
      industry, it has been seriously suggested that
      hydrogen could avoid costs associated with
      electrification, but Professor Roger Kemp argues that
      exploiting rail's unique ability to use electric
      traction directly meets environmental objectives more
      effectively.
