Default sooo close, but foreground clutter

IS there anything else wrong with this photo for RP standards? If I had taken the next shot, the lead loco would have appeared from behind the tree. I understand the point of the rejection to be the clipping of the left steps and maybe the stoplight. Any way to fix it or maybe appeal?

I know it's not quite as perfect as

, but I was hoping to tell a story like travis did(only muchhh shorter!). It feels to me like the story's incomplete without this shot.

The NS shot is excellent, Paul. Evreything worked out real well in that shot, both the things you could handle and the things you couldn't. Unfortunately, the things you could not control bit you on the rear in the CIRY shot. The only thing I can see that you can do is..... go back and reshoot.
