What they said - CW.

You can line up the bottom of the car body with the bottom of the frame.

It looks tall for a photo of a length wise locomotive.
Maybe get rid of some sky and foreground.

You went too far CW, too. But when I first opened it, the thing that jumped out at me was the cropping. The engine is centered and plus, it's a true side angle. Not a lot of interest in there either with the blah foreground and summer sky. I wouldn't want this in my RP collection if I were you.

Agreed.

What's wrong with a true side angle?

Like Mitch, you took something I said about one phhotograph and seemed to think I was talking about all photographs ever taken like that and perhaps even photography in general. Nothing is wrong with a side view. I have shot a lot of them in the past and I guess more than a few of them are on RP somewhere. In this case, with this shot, in my opinion, it's not interesting to look at because of the overall nature of this sppecific photograph.

Again, it's my opinion.

The original was ever so close to perfectly level that the rejection reason was really a "thanks, but no thanks" rejection. Stating a reason was just giving you false hope and they cause a lot of people to spend a lot of time on "lost causes". Worse yet, sometimes a borderline shot will get in because you "win" at "screener roulette" not because of the tweaks you made. The screening process, being subjective by it's very nature, has this feature.

But, that is, and has always been, the game here.

The best way to tell level on a shot like this is to find a good vertical line in the center of the photo. The carbody doors or handrail stanchions are best here.

Ya that's what I did in the first one, I used the vertical lines on the cab, I thought it was fine, but then I figured I would post in on here in case I was missing something, oh well ....

I didn't take it any way other than simply being curious to know what you meant by that. And, just for the record, I didn't seem to think you were talking about all photographs ever taken like that and perhaps even photography in general. In fact, I have no idea where you even came up with that line of thought.
