This little train has photo-Voltaics on the roof and batteries, and it runs with and without sun shining – it is a train because it goes on rails, if need be it can get electricity from the rails as well. In any case it provides its own electricity as well. You know – that old story about the little engine that could, and it clearly would be very satisfying in Disneyland and many other locations.
The museum at the station Schwechat.
