It lost allot of its impact because you photographed the train from the wrong side of the track or at the wrong time of day. Always position your camera so that the sun illuminates your subject for maximum color effect unless there is a specific reason, such as a sunset, sunburst effect, etc., for doing otherwise. The sun should normally be over your shoulder from behind you.
Bart, I agree with you about trying to get a shot with a good sun angle, but please tell me how he was supposed to shoot this train heading into the sun, with the direction it was going?? 50% of the time, trains run out of the sun.
