I don't know about being too dark but there is not much contrast in the picture.

It appears too light to me, and the sky is completely blown out. Looks like you shot right into the sun and then pumped up the brightness to compensate for underexposure.

Was it actual B&W film, or just a desaturated digital capture?? If you're shooting B&W, it might help to have a yellow or orange contrast filter to keep the sky from looking so bleak.

Edited: I meant to say filter, not picture after yellow or orange

It was submitted once in color along with the 4 times you submitted it in B&W....

The angle of the shot is marginal at best. I think being on the other side of the tracks would have been a little better.
