That looks like a shot that would've worked much better had the train been going the other way (naturally...). Our eyes are led to a very dark spot within the scene unfortunately. As for the rejection - "backlit" seems erroneous as all silhouettes are backlit and we known silhouettes are accepted on RP. Perhaps "Poor aesthetic quality" might be more appropriate. Still, the clouds are not obscuring the front of the train so as a screener, I'd have accepted it - but would like to see the overexposed sky fixed if possible. Another suggestion - go all black with the silhouette, or go the other way and provide more shadow recovery in the foreground (but not the train).
