At first glance, all I noticed that was different was the presence of a passing train. Otherwise the end of a passenger car at about the same angle and same location in the frame was the same. Of...

I think that it's a strange rejection reason for the photo. Obstruction would be more consistent with other rejections that I've received/seen. I would also expect a going away rejection.

The Boothbay Railway Museum used a Henschel for years. Does that qualify as a "foreign Maine two-footer"? :lol:
