Could this be acceptable?

I can see two things, in this picture, that I have had rejects for.

1. Subject (train) to far away.
If you want the whole signal bridge in the photo, let the
locomotive get closer. This leads to #2.

2. Cropping.
For me, the Northtown signal bridge has been a problem; I rarely
get a picture accepted where the bridge is totally included.

For this picture, try cropping the left side closer to the unit on point.

I would never say "too far away". An ariel shot is too far away.

I would crop it off on the left.

Looks like a typical High Sun Angle issue to me. Did it make it in or not?

I like it. I like how you got all the cars coming down the line. I hope this one gets in.

It looks like it was either high sun or very humid (my guess). There is a glaze over the picture. What was it rejected for? The last photo could do with a bit more chopping of the left side.

Edit:I would go almost to the left signal.
