This could be a big step toward reducing carbon emissions from rail transport!

The new, super-modern train setup will bring zero-emission energy to Aldershot station in southern England by connecting the train lines directly to nearby solar panels, which in turn will provide traction current.

Unlike other solar-powered setups that sit on the roof and provide limited power, this project hooks directly into the substation box placed around every two miles.

Hopefully this will pave the way for future projects that run directly through sunlight.
