Outstanding colors and reflection....but now I think you just need to work on the composition. Try it again with the composition you have in the first rejection, but get the light streak all the way across the bridge. You'll have to stop down to avoid the foreground lights being blown out on the longer exposure, though.

Try f16 at 15 seconds, which will give you roughly the same exposure as the settings you had on that shot. Or you could go f11 at 15 seconds and ISO 200 to reduce noise. If 2 seconds got you that much of a streak, 8 should suffice for the entire bridge (unless you get a slower moving train).
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
