Default Would this be interesting enough to hold some merit, despite being a cloudy day?

Got this shot of two unfinished MBTA F40PH-3C rebuilds on a tied down Boise Valley Railroad freight in Nampa, ID today. They were undergoing total rebuilds at MPI when Wabtec-GE ordered all rebuilding operations moved to Erie, PA, so these may very well mark the end of an era of locomotive rebuilding in Boise going back at least 30 years. Which leads me to wonder... would this be an interesting enough shot to make it here, given the context? The wires are an issue, but I imagine those can be clone-stamped out rather easily. As for lighting, being somewhat sunny but partly cloudy makes this a difficult call for me, so I figured I'd ask around here before risking another swing and a miss.
Believe it or not, I do try.

Probably not.

Looks and feels like a last second grab image with more minuses than pluses overall.

It has some appeal as an End of an Era news photo.
But seeing it once is about enough as white shrink wrap is not that photogenic.

If it was a better location where you could have more of a roster shot of the flatcar and load that might have worked, but this angle is too awkward, even with the news piece of it.

Going to be interesting to see these in Erie though.
