I've been through 4 rejections with this shot. I've had an underexposure, 2 undersharpeneds, and then the bad color/underexposed duo. What should I do to correct the color and exposure? Thanks!

Ease back on the saturation a bit and a slight adjustment in levels and you should be fine. Here is a quick version I came up with.

Might want to sharpen a little bit too.

Don't forget to clone out the distracting leaves in the upper right corner.

Yep, clone the leaves, sharpen it a bit, but I'd also recrop and add more to the bottom. The train looks cramped down there.
