I don't think showing the whole station is more important than excluding the aesthetic blemishes. I'd crop just a bit to the right of the chimney or the roof ventilator. The sign on the platform canopy is sufficient to identify location.
To me, the worst crime against photographic aesthetics on this site is the enormous watermarks they facilitate. So I didn't even notice the green box.
Your suggestion has merit. Cropping that out also gets rid of the car and brings the train into compliance with the Commandment of Thirds.
