Default Black & White Help Any Hope?

Ive been struggleing with this one for a day or two now. I adjust things up and down and kind of loose site of where I started and where I need to be.

Is there any hope for this one?

I got through some exposure and contrast problems then got hit with the Bad Cropping reject.


Now Im back to contrast problems.

The fuel pump in front of the rear of the locomotive is really killing the shot for me

Front coupled with lots of badly framed distracting stuff, I like the tones, but it doesn't have a chance.

I agree that this shot likely won't make it in for being front coupled, but for the sake of the question, your black and white conversion looks more grey and grey to me. There's no difference that I can tell between the red part of th loco and the blue part. The lighting isn't great at that spot either. The trucks look dark, but that may be salvagable with better contrast. I say keep working on the B&W here for practice sake, but that the shot won't make it onto RP no matter what.
