The only reason I can see this being rejected for backlit is the drivetrain has some shadow on it, but to me this is minor considering the fact that the subject is not a common one.

This is an interesting photo; it has a "surreal" feel to it...

It looks like the ground is really bright but the locomotive (even though already black) is much darker than the ground. I'm not sure if brightening the photo will help. Doesn't appear backlit, though.

What time of day was the photo taken? Was it around noon? It looks like the sun is directly overhead the train instead of hitting it on an angle, and because of this the lower parts seem to fall into shadow. You could try brightening it, but this may wash out some of the foreground. Nice shot though.

Thanks for the input guys. The picture was taken around mid day in August, so the sun was pretty high in the sky. Probably the shadowed running gear is what got it kicked.
