Question "Both sides" submissions

Not going to name any names, this is just to ask the group if submitting both sides of the same unit is common/accepted practice. There's an example of that in the db this week. Now I will say that both sides are excellent sunlit "roster shot" images.

I'm sure many of us have chased a train and ended up with submissions from either side of the track...

I see nothing wrong with that.

As long as it wasn't flipped in photoshop, and there's perfect light and blah blah blah, why not?

We're on the same page; I see nothing wrong with it either, those were both great images; WGRF grade. That's why I phrased the question that way, to not sound critical.

And yet one of these images was rejected on appeal last year...

Really, I was quite surprised as the first one (originally submited as "Side A" in the remarks) looks nothing like the second rejected one. Especially when you compare it to the mirror image view Jim found, or the myriad of multiple wreck scenes from every angle imaginable. The above shot is my second highest viewed photo - seems that's good traffic for RP?
