Go tighter. Cut from the top, left and bottom, keeping the same ratio. You want to keep the flag on the side of the locomotive, though.

RP is RP, but I like it as it is. I'd rather see ballast/rails than plain blue sky, within reason.

Within my reason, that is.

This is about as tight as you can get it with the plow and the flag in the frame.

You mean that engineer came clear across the cab and knocked the conductor out of the way just to wave at you and get in the picture?? That WAS a friendly engineer! (just yankin' your chain....)
