Default Some rejections

I usually understand why my photos get rejected, but there's a few I'm having trouble with.

It is preferable if you post the links to the actual RP rejection pages, in particular so we can see what was said, but also so we can see the picture in the exact form/quality seen by the screeners.

The Amtrak switcher looks pretty dark.

Well, OK, but could you please provide the reasons given?

Vermonter - might be bad image quality, blown out nose. Oh, and it doesn't look vertical, station and some people tilted to the left.

GMRR - light looks pretty harsh, and lots of shadow areas. Also, the engine is front-coupled, can't see the full nose, and the going-away angle doesn't do much for me. The shot feels a bit tight to me also, cramped.

More if I see the originals. Good luck!
