Default Attempt at a locomotive detail shot

I didn't want to put "bad cropping" in the subject title since that seems to be a bit cliche these days, but that's what this one was rejected for:

Frankly, I expected a rejection but not for cropping. I am not particularly adept at detail shots, but I am intrigued by this part of a Shay locomotive and wanted to try to capture it in some sort of context.

I am guessing the crop is too tight and they want more of the locomotive, and if so I am not all that interested in chasing after this. I just wanted to show this running gear in detail somehow but not the entire locomotive. My angle included the cab and the rails just so it was evident what was being photographed, any tighter and I don't think it would have been interesting.

Any thoughts on this attempt are appreciated.
