Well, the dust cloud or whatever it is that is in front of the pilot is unappealing. The shot isn't sharp. The sky goes from white to blue to purple in what to my eye is a strange pattern.

Aside from image quality issues, the light does not seem to be RP preferred - it appears to be coming low from the left and the engine and cars are in shadow. The composition does not make that particular light into an interesting image.

Also, there are a lot of poles and two weird looking square boxes above the cab.

All in all, a lot of flaws, for which the presence of the crewman (?) is insufficient compensation, to my eye. Sorry, not a fan.
