"Central China produces super-capacity light rail train"

"CHANGSHA, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) - The world's first super-capacity light rail train was completed Friday by China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CSR) Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co., Ltd. in Zhuzhou, central China's Hunan province. [It was nearly ready on Thursday.]

"The new type of electric locomotive can be fully charged within 30 seconds during its station stops, as it has a box-type super capacitor on the roof and charge spots at the foot of every compartment, Xu Zongxiang, general manager of the company, said.

"The train, which can hold a maximum of 320 passengers, does not need a traditional pantograph installed on the roof to get electricity from the high-tension lines along the track, according to Xu.

"Xu said the train, which features low energy consumption and occupies less land, can provide a new solution for the construction of highly cost-effective and environmentally-friendly urban rail public transport."
