Default STP, but can't find anything like it

Can anyone find a picture similar to this? I can't. I actually thought it would get axed for bad comp again with too much open space on the right. I want to re-crop to include the containers on the left which contain the parts for the new signals, but if there is another similar photo, I'd want to point that out in my re-submit.

That is usually a rejection based on recent activity in the queue, not based on a person's collection from over a month ago. I don't think screeners memorize or care about any individual's collective oeuvre.

Perhaps there was a technical muckup and your image appeared twice in the queue? Perhaps someone else uploaded something similar today? Perhaps the screener clicked on the wrong thing?

They could have hit the wrong reason, but there are a lot of shots of the METX 187 from a nose only angle. Not to mention you have a boat load of shots of those signals, though I didn't see one exactly siiliar to this one. But is there some PIQ going on? Someting looks off in the shot to me anyway. Certainly a lot of heat distortion going on as well as the bad cropping -- not includingthe entire signal.

Also, STP? Reminds me of Stone Temple Pilots. Which reminds me of how similiar to previous they are to Pearl Jam.

I think the train being on the nearest track creates dead space over the far tracks, so whole signal bridge isn't needed

I counted about 6 shots of East Naperville EBCS. I've been getting the last "scraps" of sunlight this week as I've been getting out of work really late. Hoping to make it out more on time today.
