A retired ScotRail train has been brought back into service as an experiment in using hydrogen to fuel to transform the rail network.

The Class 314 locomotive has been converted to run on hydrogen which is seen as a solution to helping Scotland achieve its zero-carbon targets.

Abbott Risk Consulting (ARC), the Edinburgh-based risk and safety consultancy, is working with Arcola Energy, the hydrogen and fuel cell technology integration specialist, Arup, the global engineering consultancy, and AEGIS Certification.

The project is being funded by Scottish Enterprise and Transport Scotland, let through the Hydrogen Accelerator, based at St Andrews University.
