More and more new vehicles are being developed which use eco-friendly sources of power. We have seen this with recent innovations such as a motorcycle built to run on algae oil and electric drone taxis. Now an Australian rail line has proven that a fully-solar train is also feasible. The Byron Bay Railroad Company, in New South Wales, has restored a derelict heritage train for use as public transport, by converting it to operate entirely on solar energy. The not-for-profit company originally intended to get the train up and running as a diesel service, but realised that the fast pace of technological advancement in solar energy made is feasible to convert the train to solar.
