In my opinion it is going away, but I am not looking to debate the merits of going away shots. I have taken my share of them, but as often as not, it is to capture locomotive numbers, or to record an unusual trailing unit. I almost never consider them for presentation purposes.

I would rather suggest that you have a takeaway that planning the shot in advance might have taken you to explore the possibilities of an access point a few hundred yards to the left of where you took this photo. Always look to have the nose of the lead locomotive in the shot, or at worst case shoot dead broadside.
