Wow, beats me. I think the poles and the signal gantry make the shot, and there isn't a lotta dead space at top or bottom. Perhaps it isn't quite the right dimensions (seems a li'l square). I'd appeal and request clarification. Sometimes you'll get a hint that way.

Good luck.

I'm surprised it didn't get cut because of the distracting shadow that hits the right side of the engine...

It's probably more because the subject is smack dab in the middle of the shot. Even with the signal bridge, the photo feels lopsided...

The only thing I could venture a guess on is: crop up to the ladder on the signal structure.

I'd crop out the poles on the left altogether. The train would be more towards the left of the photo, but I think that would make for a better photo. IMO, the poles detract from this photo.
