Icey Cables

They arc, spark, and sizzle way too much for my comfort. The sound of the electricity arcing has always been the sound of death to me.

Tomorrow... some passenger will say:

And there was this big space ship above the train shining a bright light through the windows! I think they wanted to probe us!

That's f*cked up. It's normal that they can spark. But not that much! There's a lot of energy going to waste and there is something breaking down very slowly. You can see that on the sparks that fly of. Those are very small pieces of a metal :)

Btw, That sparking is dangerous to your eyes if you continue to watch it in person. Watching this video won't hurt your eyes though.

Hi there,

the sparking is caused from the ice on the wire. You can see that they drive with all pantographs lifted.
