With a super-elevated S curve, you would think that you'd get an equal amount of opposite lean between the loco and the auto rack.

There is absolutely no reference point here for "level." This is a reverse curve with super elevation on both sides. The post that's sticking out of the ground isn't perpendicular to the ground.

I would ask the screener to suggest what element to level. I have no idea....but it looks okay to me (perhaps a little tight and nose-on).

I dont think it's unlevel, but they will get you for the cropping because it's a tad too tight.

Looks quite soft to me. I'm guessing they would want CCW rotation, since the section of track between the curves should be somewhat close to level, and that edge of the rack on that section has a mean lean to it. I would guess about 2 degrees CCW, perhaps more.

This would look better in a landscape format...

I agree. I would have probably rejected it for composition, not unlevel. It's just way too tight for my tastes. You get no sense of where you are---just a face full of locomotive (and not a pretty one at that!).

Talking Major Facepalm.

This is a "gee, this doesn't look like all the wedgies that I have approved today, and it just looks wrong, but I have no idea why, so I will hit whatever button is nearest to my index finger right now."

Ding ding ding, you get "unlevel!"

Thanks for playing.

Picture looks fine, but landscape would be a better format - in my opinion.
