Yes you are correct Shortlines - the engine is heading nose first into the sun. This side of the bridge is only illuminated in the early morning as the sun traverses to the opposite side in the afternoon.

The appeal failed so the screener still must not have liked the shadows or the shot in general.

Perhaps there will be another morning when there's no clouds obscuring the sun, when a southbound train train is scheduled to arrive between 7:30am and 9:00 am and when I get another weekend day pass and try to photo this spot.
