Default I don't see the blurry?

Maybe my monitor is bad? I don't see the blurry.
Cloudy, yes I got "cloud F-ed" on this shot, I thought it was exposed appropriately.

Thoughts?

To me, the train doesn't look "blurry" to me as much as maybe a little soft, but there looks to be something wanky with the ballast and the foliage on the other side of the tracks. Did maybe an auto-focus get you?

The number boards do look slightly blurry on my display. They're not bad, but they're just not obviously sharp.....soft is probably a better word. When I am looking at my own locomotive pictures, my eyes typically go right to the number plate, number boards.....the nose of the engine. If that looks super-sharp, I am satisfied with the overall image focus/sharpness. On this one, it's not super-sharp.

The greens are a little strange and you need to crop out the restof the sign on the lower right. For some reason, WSOR number boards give me a hard time. The often look slightly soft, even though everything else is in focus.

I always said that if railroads wanted to eff with photographers, they would paint their number boards to look slightly out of focus
