Default Not Level

It would be my guess that they want the bridge to be level. Anyone have any thoughts?

Seems to me a bit of an awkward angle which leads to a tough time in leveling. Maybe get Jim Thias. Don't know if the photo will be able to get on though. Doesn't seem "Railpics Worthy".

That big black abyss at top right is ultimately going to prevent it from getting in no matter how level it is

Rule of thumb, especially when you have some major wide angle distortion like this photo does, level off the center-most vertical. Then, if you're feeling up to it, fix that distortion so the left and right side verticals match the center.

Also the bridge structure is blocking the trucks, that has gotten pictures rejected more often than not

It's level, but you forgot to fix the wide angle distortion.

I see PEQ coming on this. It's cropped very erratically. Not a fn of not being able to see what is under the bridge the train is on. That is more troublesome to me that the "big black void," which I don't like either. Not a fan of the placement of the train or the bridge obstructing the train in this case. If you're standing under a highway bridge, cn ytou shoot from it instead of below it?
