Personally, I would try to get a shot with sun on the face of the building, if possible have the standard 3/4 wedge light on the visible face and side.

A side note: If you have to enter the model yourself, follow the convention of the dropdown. It should be "EMD SD40N" as opposed to just "SD40N" so that the search is actually useful.
