Catching the spark

Not a great photo, but I'm happy to have caught one of those giant sparks that fly when the train connects with the 3rd rail in the wet snow. (Or, as I think of the physics of it--not that you should even count on my thoughts about physics--it's perhaps when the train loses the connection with the third rail in the snow.)
