I find it a little washed out, could use some black point adjustment/haze filter/contrast work (depending on your software).

You could crop it a bit from mainly the top/right, keeping the original...

Did they say what they thought the color cast was? I can see maybe a need for more saturation, but I'm not clear on what they thought the color cast was.

That's nice. And, ironically better than many "accepted" photos - even some that violate [other] "rules." Might want to lift the shadows a little bit - but don't let that beautiful sky blow out.

That is a really bad numberboard font! Something that hard to read could get somebody killed in Track Warrant Territory, should a mistake regarding a unit number be made.

Yeah I'd have to say the "it's MILW stuff from 1974" factor is the only redeeming quality of that one. Pretty abysmal.

Looks more like a "focus point" of lack of "focus lock" issue; the hoppers do look sharp, as you said, suggesting maybe the camera was focused on something behind the lead unit, or just didn't lock...

I'd recommend you try ON1 Photo RAW, which is powerful but not overpriced and can be had in a "perpetual" (non-subscription) form.

Looks better! I'd darken the highlights and/or boost the contrast some, since imo it's a bit washed out; that will probably make it look somewhat "sharper" too, as a bonus.

Were you shooting RAW...

There's a lot of that, and it further is not done with any consistency - you'll find plenty of shots that "don't have light on the nose" that have been accepted.

Which, in no small part, is why...
