Unhappy 'bad info' -- I'm not complaining, I'm confused.

One of my photos was recently rejected for 'bad info' as the comment. No reasons for rejection, just a puzzling comment. I am really confused; I did not fabricate anything, and the comment was acceptable. Can you guys clarify this one, I hate to make two threads so soon, this means I can't complain about other stuff for a while

Bad Info usually means wrong engine type, wrong railroad, etc. Lets see the photo.

I still don't see any fabrication.

You have the wrong locomotive information. It should be EMD SD60M, instead of GE AC4400CW.

I'll try that, but, according to the UP roster in the Altamont Press Rocky Mountain Region Timetable 7 (current as of 2005), UP 6300 is a GE AC4400CW, not an EMD SD60M.

In addition
, I don't think UP 6300 is in the database, so I cannot confirm that it is a GE AC4400CW or an EMD SD60M.

The curved windshields is another way to tell that's an SD60M. Nice shot!

Thank you, I should've known it was an EMD SD60M, but the Altamont Press timetables have never been incorrect to me.

No problem. My best friend (Robby Gragg, who is a contributor to RP) taught me about the curved windshield trick.

Another good spotting feature to use is fuel tanks. EMD uses a more or less rounded tank, while GE is more boxy with 90 degree corners. Also, GE's can be spotted by the fire damage (or fire) ....the EMD will be the one doing all the work

There are several good roster sites out there, but I prefer to use this one...
