The train is sidelit, not sure if you can save this one.

Crop the top, looks a little grainy. Nice shot.

Leave a little more in front of the engine (the left) so the train has someplace to go. You can also very carefully select the front of the hood, and brighten it up a little, and add just a little contrast.

Are we talking about making this a good shot? Or making it RP-worthy? I like the shot as is with the things mentioned above, but the side light will probably keep this off of Railpictures.
