The August shot has both locomotives with the same roadnumber and the September shot is also a mess. There are some very basic issues with perspective here - note how the third and fifth locomotives look all humped up and the poor fourth locomotive looks squished. I should add that there is so much color noise in the December shot that it looks like a Thomas Kinkade painting.

Personally, as a photographer, I'd be a little jolted to sell a photo and have it come back looking like some of these. Even though the photos in the calendar went uncredited, I still recognized some of them immediately. Yes, it's money in the bank, but it's also recognizable work.
