Hybrid plan for Regional Rail Fleet,NSW,Australia

Post by David Benton » Wed Nov 13, 2019 12:35 am

"New South Wales’ new Regional Rail Fleet will be built with bi-mode technology to allow both diesel and electric operation, for an estimated cost saving of $2 million a year.

Along with a saving in diesel fuel costs, the government estimates $1 million per annum in health and environmental benefits by reducing carbon emissions by more than 540 tonnes annually – the equivalent of around 77 Australian households. The trains will also be quieter during their electric operation."

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
