Lightning in a Bottle
One of the more interesting electric arcs Ive captured. I figured Id share it before it disappears. https://www.railpictures.net/viewrej...09&key=5897929

Thanks for sharing. I've never seen an electric train let alone an arc such as this one. I like the reference to "Back to the Future" as well and it is reminiscent. I saw all the movies and I love the bolt (1.21 Gigawatts!), should have got on RP for that alone. " Roads? Where we are going, we don't need roads.........."

You see it a bunch on the NEC, especially with the Acelas. It's more luck over skill to catch it though. I'd bet the greenish color is due to the white balance used in those conditions, but it's still cool.
