Default Bad Cropping

I'm still trying my photo -- which was rejected for "Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation." -- I can see that.

So I started back at the beginning in my processing flow and I think the
sharpness and color are much improved. What I am getting now is bad cropping. The two most recent bad crops are below.

I don't know how to post the original uncropped version. It is a bit large for the specs of this forum.

Am I trying to get too much into the scene? I liked the three engines... but I lose the yard tower. If I do one train with the yard tower I lose the petro train on the very left. Do I need to crop closer and 'remove' the tops of the hills in the background?

Can anyone see other problems I'm going to run into if and when I get this cropped 'properly'?

Or is this just for my personal collection and I need to move on?
