Default Any ideas/opinions?

First bad crop:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=178520

Then bad angle:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=178529

Appeals rejected.... This is the only angle i can get w/o crossing the main and several yard tracks. There is chain link fence all around me and obstructions elsewhere. Not sure what I'm missing here, not an exciting angle but sure as heck an interesting subject. I don't want to use the forums as a tool for complaining but with some other eyes I can maybe improve this. Thanks!

Well, after two submissions and (apparently) two rejected appeals, this seems like a lost cause. Interesting shot though. Just not of RP.net's interest.

I think a vehicle with a cherry picker would be adventageous for the railfan.

Was this in transit to a museum?

About the only thing I can see working on this photo, is to crop it down to the bare minimum in size. (800x600) Make sure the subject appears level, and cut out all the useless clutter, tracks in front, trees, etc. Maybe even part of the flat car.

It's a long shot, but might work.

It was lifted onto a truck and transported out west...

And Greg, as an employee, can't you get out there for a pic?

I'm allowed to get pics closer but they can only be for personal use... And I must meet all safety regulations. Can't publish anything or put anything online if I do so. That's a shame as Railpace might be interested in doing something with this as it is newsworthy. Speaking of a bucket truck..... My family business has a junker one.... Very interesting idea, LOL. Might get some VERY weird looks though. Not sure if it is still there but it's possible....this is where it was loaded so no transporting was done yet.
