The shading of the vehicle is still incorrect:

Ill try to explain
The sun is in a fixed position, to keep it simple, its on the right.
So, that means when you start out with graphic nr2, the long side is facing the sun and the short side is facing the shadow.
So, colors used for the long side should be lighter than colors used for the short side.
When you flip your image, to get the other direction, you also have to change the shading!
So, then the long side is in the shadow and the short side is facing the sun.
Keep this also in mind for curved roofs!! (flat roofs can usually keep the same shading, no matter what direction of the vehicle)
By the way, to make it even better looking, you should also keep in mind where the details are placed on the roof.
So in this case the connection to the powerlines is at the front of the train (so at the side where the yellow lights are).
Make sure they stay there, as it is a bit odd that when a train for example runs in a circle, that the details swap from side to side
To illustrate what I mean:

By the way, this is why I stick to stations and objects, those dont move...
