Unconfirmed what the circumstances were, but this one didn't make it to port. Looks like a lightning strike.

Those cars on the transports are possibly Pro S ID4s. I only mention that because of the Moonstone gray car.

Is that a Moonstone Gray I spy in front of it? Looks like those might be Pros or Pro(s) models.

The catenary wires over the rail lines suggest this was in Europe somewhere. That being said, it could have been en route to Emden for shipment somewhere

looks like some Pro's based on the 2 piece flitzer on the white and blue. And definitely looks like Moonstone grey in front. that is a great color

I wonder if the hatch came open during shipment, causing an arc from the overhead catenary.

based on the 2 holes in the hatch that looks like a good possibility

I have to think that, as anal as German's are, they would have accounted for that possibility.

Lightning strikes to cars can leave holes that look like that. Plus, I'd think the contact wires would be much higher off the train's roofline than that hatch can reach, and there'd likely be damage on the lower portion of the hatch as well.

Lightning damage:
