Some more comments: shots 1,2,5 cut off the back end of the train. RP does not generally like that, they want to see the entire train trail off into the distance or have it be cutoff behind a building, trees, or other object.

Shot 5: interesting context is always good, rather than just a shot of a train on a track that could be anywhere. Here you have what looks to be an entrance to *ER CROSS FIELD. Make use of that! Show the train as it is about to pass that entrance, not as it is already in front of it. That will be nice, an interesting background for the train plus sense of location.
