The track here runs from WNW to ESE and you are on the south side of the tracks.

How does this shot look from the parking lot?

Actually, I think the post processing is fine and sufficient detail has been brought up from the shadow without overdoing it. I've seen much worse, including from myself. If you have an earlier frame, I would use that and crop right and top; getting rid of the ugly sky would help a lot.
