I should add after reviewing a photo of SBVR 102, it is NOT a GP35 carbody. With some conversations elsewhere, we have determined it is ex CLNA 9657, which is former CSXT 9657/B&O 3806.

I appreciate that input, Doug. You're right-- sharpen the image enough to make the train look right and the sky looks like a Lite-Brite. And I have more friends using Lightroom than anything.

That's about as helpful as tossing a 50-page report back on an employee's desk and saying "This needs work."

Good point; I hadn't thought of that one. I might have enough room on the scan to loosen that up a bit, but not likely not enough to overcome the tight crop.

I was surprised to see this photo get rejected, but then remembered the dreaded "going away." I rarely appeal, and if I do with this one, I think it would be my second time in nearly 20 years of...

Looks like the camera shook just a bit, to me. Nothing is really crisp, at least on my monitor. For cropping, I think I would prefer the entire bridge structure be shown instead of cut off on the...
