I would assume a bad crop is less about "balance/ composition" and more about using a "poor" aspect ratio or cropping out something that should've remained, or vice versa - like a building or pole.

Both seem somewhat centered in regards to the subject - ie, the train is centered in the center of the image, top to bottom. I'd suggest lowering the train or adding more sky.
