Do what you did for the second one, crop a bit off the left side, not as much as Ween proposes in my view, apply noise reduction, sharpen. It looks close. Oh, one more thing, your 0.3 rotation is not enough. Zoom in and get the side edge of the door in the nose of the lead unit perfectly vertical. (And then say you did so in your comments to the screener.)

I don't think the dark color on the nose is an issue - remember the screeners are well familiar with CSX in snow! Keep in mind that RP likes the shots to be sharp! so if you want to upload to RP, you will have to set your mind to a different standard with respect to unsharp mask than what you have chosen for yourself.

Good luck, welcome, look forward to more.
