Ammonia (NH3) is an emerging source of hydrogen and contains more energy than liquid hydrogen for an equivalent volume.

Hydrogen can either be combusted the normal way in existing internal combustion engines or it can be used to generate electricity using hydrogen fuel-cell technology.

Although ammonia itself is nasty stuff it should be able to be safely handled in much the same way as petrol or diesel.

Now if there is a train collision, the accident scene should come up nice and clean.
