Bad Cropping Again

I like this shot, but am not even sure where to start as far as cropping goes.
Is there too much RR bridge on the right side?

There is no sky to add. She took it so that the train is way up at the top of the frame. Oh well, another learning experience. I was down the hill farther shooting film, so I couldn't offer the girls...

I do have later frames, but as it swings around the curve it loses all the sun hitting the left side of the cab. I'll have to look at them all closer if I have time this weekend. Thanks!

Should I bother?

I know it's backlit, but I like the way the smoke hangs in the air and the sun hits the left side of the engine. Is it worth playing with, or will it just get hit for poor lighting/ backlit?
