Question Underexposed?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=144935

I'm aiming for the artistic in doing the NS in B&W... if I start lightening nice black units, they *will* look like crap. Already tried. And since it is artistic, I'm sticking to my guns on these, but I could use some opinions.

IMO B&W is about the various contrasts and I don't look at them as "just a train photo." I lightened up a couple and they look "flat" right away.

Waddaya all think? (didn't appeal it yet)

Thanks!

Rich

IMHO it looks like the exposure is right on the money. It's light enough that you can see details in the shadows and dark enough that I can see sky detail. I really hate a burned out sky and try to avoid it when shooting b&w so I think you're about as good as its going to get. Personally I love b&w photography, especially along the NS and only wish this site was a little bit friendlier toward them.

Thanks-I hate to bitch & moan but it seems that they aren't happy until the pic is so overexposed that it looks awful-one thing I won't do with mine.
