I love trains. I am sure you do too! Often when I watch trains go by, either at the station, or from a bridge, I notice that many trains look, well – Headless! Where is the locomotive? Who is pulling the train? Magic? Well we all know there is no such thing as magic. So who? I asked my father that question. He pretends not to like trains; yeah right! Who believes that? Anyway, he said many trains now have a little electric motor or a diesel engine at the bottom of each car. So each train car pulls itself, and there is no locomotive needed! My first thoughts – YUK, we still use stinky and heavily polluting diesel? Not even petrol? And here I thought I was born in 21st century. So much for modern high-tech stuff, that we still have trains based on 100+ years old technologies. Never mind that; without a locomotive trains look boring and I must say Weak, Very Weak!
So, after finishing my home work, and some science (yes, I love science!), I decided to draw a high-tech locomotive. And here its is….
It is aero-dynamic, and it runs on fuel-cells. What are fuel-cells? Click here to find out!
