Because I work on engines, I like it.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I think it's interesting. This is a B&W that works for me too, apparently at least 1 screener disagrees.

I find it more interesting than closeups of rail spikes.

. . . but less interesting than pics of dogs on trains. Seriously, it works for me, but who knows about the screeners?

A caption would go a long way in telling us what we're looking at. As a photo, Ifind it very appealing, though I might would have cropped a bit off the top and bottom.

Love it, but like Joe says a caption telling what it is would be nice.

Count me in for liking the rejected one. The other one is a little too up close and personal for me. I see that it says Alco, but what part of an Alco

It's in for (repair)? Hood must be off if we see this much of the engine. If you have a shot of the whole thing may help and the locomotive too.

No luck for this one, guys, the appeal was rejected.

Richard, I think it's the cylinder cover.

I tried submitting as Joe recomended me and still being PEQ

So sad, but thanks again for your points of view!!

The first one is a solid B&W image with very nice contrast.

I guess they just don't want it.

Hi guys, I'm back after a long time.

I relive this post to tell that the shot was finally accepted, with the difference that I added in the description "Taken with permission".

I would hope that's not the only reason. What do they think? That you broke into a diesel shop to take a picture?

Let me get this straight.

Last year it was a PEQ, and now it's an SC?

Don't get me wrong, it's an awesome photo! But if this doesn't convince you that the screening process is a subjective thing...

Maybe, but following the theory of the missed permission mention, PEQ also includes "it's not the material that what we want to show". Don't know if I expressed well the idea. What I mean it's that if you not specify that you did not have the permission to take the photo, thr photo can't be uploaded.

Cheers!
