This shot looks cloudy, not backlit. The B&W version has a lot of noise for a shot from 2014. I'm not crazy about the composition either. There's a lot of clutter on the left, with potentially interesting equipment either awkwardly cut off or blocked by the lamp posts and signs. I also think there's too much blocking the view of the station. If you have a different frame with the Motor Coach in the left of the image, and the center and right showing the switch stand, signal, and (a not cut off) water tower, I think that would be better. I don't know if that would stop a screener for rejecting it for weather/lighting reasons, but that's life.
