Default Cloudy day, common power

This shot was rejected for cloudy day/common power, but the sun was shining on the train, there were just clouds behind the train, so the lighting actually isn't all that bad. Is there anything I can do to get it accepted?
Heres the shot

Looks a little soft and dull.

Sharpen and increase the color saturation.

However the mono-tone washed out sky might doom this one with RP.

But it isn't all that great either. Try David's suggestions and see what you come up with. I agree that the washed out sky doesn't really help the photo any.

Upping the saturation might help, like David suggested. If the sun is shining, it is hard to tell. Maybe you got cloud zapped? I can see what appears to be some sun on the end of the train.
