Most likely, regardless of what you do, the next rejection will be bad angle.
You could try a vertical crop, or if wanting to stay horizontal do like you said and crop the metra car out.
Perhaps it's my poor perspective, but it appears you need some CW rotation. Everything is listing to the left.
And to correct your spelling, there's an 'h' in Thomas.

I donot think that cropping the Metra cars will get it as it will make the photo lose abreathing area from the left.Mybe avertical crop working.

There's a bit too much going on here for a wedgie-style-headonish shot, such as you presented. Also, it's a bit tight too. When there's a lot going on, get some sort of elevation or height, if at all possible, and pull back, go wide. As in oversharpening, I can't tell. My PC with my nice $400 HD flatscreen is out of service, it has been for about 5 months, so I've been using Jennifers laptop to process and view. But if I were to guess, on here it does look oversharpened.

Definitely over-sharpened, look at the power lines.

For cropping you could try taking some off the left and top but, as "Save The Wave" says, it is not the best angle. I would have tried standing further to the right, but the blue sign on the derailer might well get in the way.

It appears the screeners liked it cause it is in the DB.

High sun rejection not all the times mean that the angel of sun rays is high.In your case the sun is facing the face of the locomotive directly so if you looked to the trucks specially the wheels you can see that its not well lightened.Give it another try but with more low sun angel and alittle more breathing area from the right.

Forget the high part, Its the lack of light on the trucks, I think its just the clean paint, lack of dirt. try to lighten the shots a bit? Or appeal saying its clean black paint and there lit fine.
