Default Composition / balance - not sure about this one

The only thing I can think of that might be a composition / balance issue in this shot, is that there is too much sky.

Anything else that I might be missing?

They may not be thrilled with the placement of the lead loco relative to the catenary pole. I think you might have had more success if you had framed the engine within the catenary supports. The other thing is that the nose of the lead engine is awful close to the edge of the picture.

Shift the field of view to the left a little. I.E. take a little off the right and add some to the left.

Darn - Sharks just scored. Bye.

Thanks Jon and Jim, I did not have much room to play with on the rejected shot, so instead I submitted a slightly earlier shot from the same sequence and it made it on.
