Not sure how this happened. What exactly is cut off? I'm not seeing it.

I'd bet its in reference to the platform that's cutting the engine off from just below the walkway.

The bottom left portion of the loco is gone. What's weird is I've seen plenty of your photos like this accepted.

I attempted with an appeal. Usually appeals get rejected, so this will be rejected. But, no consistency with the rejections.

Just curious, Chris, why do you want to upload yet another nose-at-the-platform MBTA shot?

I'm not objecting, just curious. You have other, more interesting shots on RP, I like this one in particular.

That's one rejection I really disagree with if all other technicalities are in order. All photos of trains with their trucks blocked by a RR object, just not yours. We had an awesome shot a few weeks ago in here that got rejected for one thing, and when that was fixed, it got the foreground clutter cuz the trucks were blocked by the sides of the RR bridge that it was on. I'll have to dig through and find that thread when I have more time. It was a glint shot of a caboose hop if I remember correctly.

[EDIT] Let me add properly placed obstructions. A cross buck in the middle of a loco, no-no. But the side of a RR bridge on a RR bridge shot, or in this case a platform in a station shot,

I have found that the screeners are quite inconsistent when it comes to platform photos. For example, I have a number of accepted photos of a train at a station platform, yet had a few rejected with "Part of Subject Cut Off/Missing".

The rejected shot is also leaning to the left. I could also see it being canneds for Similiar to Previous Photo.
