The whole image appears to be soft even to the point of calling it blurry.

It's a legitimate rejection, one I'm surprised you can not see.

Heat distortion works when the distortion (blur) is where it's suppose to be, not the entire shot leaving not even the nose out of focus.

Just because closer shots are in focus does not mean the blur was from heat - it could be a depth of field issue or your focus point not being where it should've been to properly focus the engine when it was further back. Maybe it started to hunt? Maybe as the train came closer it came into focus. Either way, and even if it was heat distortion, it's not an appealing photo because of the blur.
