Default Leveling Insanity

need help leveling.

First one I used the poles (both on the ground and up on the light rail ROW).

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...95&key=9877904

Second one I estimated with my eyes.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...97&key=3056943

Third one I used a vertical on the lead locomotive.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...13&key=1580378

I still think the second one is right, although logic says the first one is right.

Help.

They all appear to be leaning CW by at least .5% to my naked eye.

With the first one, use the distortion tool and pull the left side out until the side of the cab is parallel with the side of your computer monitor.

The train needs to go CCW, but the right side bridge pillars are strait.

BTW - "I" eat fish.

They all "appear" to be leaning a little to the right?? (CW)

Trying a different frame (after another reject). Went back to leveling off the poles.

I think it's level, but a tad distorted. I would "crab in" the top of the frame on each side towards center, then crop accordingly...

I think it's such a small extent though, I am kind of surprised they rejected it. Especially when you consider how many blatantly obvious ones get through.

I am just looking at the cab edges and all three of those lean right. That is what you need to level off of.

It's amazing what you can find in the data base.

We have established many times that old stuff doesn't count as rejections were nonexistent then

I wasn't that wide, but having both trains stretched out like that and so close to the edges of the frame I think made it difficult to see it level (maybe there was some minor distortion even - although I didn't see it).
