The rail shot, it might help a lot if the caption gave some indication of the source of the wavy line. The given caption confuses rather than clarifies.

The station shot, for me the car presence is too strong to be a "rail" shot - there are station shots on RP but my recollection of them is they are clearly structure shots. I can see from the setting that it might be difficult to get such a shot. Maybe find a way to get some elevation?

In neither case is your BW conversion at issue. In the station shot, I do think that, aside from RP suitability in terms of content and focus, the shot is cramped and cut-off unpleasantly. It seems like it would do better as a horizontal. I am a fan of verticals but this one does not work for me in that format.
