Maybe there should be more feedback from the screeners, but that's probably not feasible since they're continually deluged with new photos to look at. The only other feedback/critique a photographer has is when his reject shows up in this forum.
Agree with you on this - RP is not the be all and end all of railway photography sites. It tends to be at the more conservative end of the spectrum as a result of what you have said above. There is plenty of fine photography to be found elsewhere.
