From what I get here, more sunlight is of the essence. Ok.
Your rejected photo is flat and the sky is grey, implying that it is a cloudy day. Do you use a photo editor? Miningcamper's edit gives it a better appearance, mainly through the addition of contrast.

I never asked for a mediocre picture of mine to be accepted. But on the same principle you would expect mediocre pictures of "established" contributors to be rejected as well.
Rarity does not depend on the location of the photo, except in the case of high-security or inaccessible sites where the trains are rarely seen by anyone but employees. A photo of a regularly-running tram on a public street can be taken by anyone that it passes, so it is not "rare". While I prefer to see variety here, repetition does not define mediocrity. If a photo stands on its own technical merits it will be accepted here.
