What do I need to do? Crop the car wash out on the right, put more to the left? I do have others that I took of the train as it came around the curve.

Can the depot be saved from croping it out from the rejected photo or does it have to go to ballance the photo out? The one I started with is the one you see in the post.

Looks like too much Sky drop the crop down to just above the top of that pine tree, also the fact the wheels of the locomotive are below the track in front are not helping any. I am no expert but i dont think it works well

What depot? The inconspicuous roof in the trees that could be a depot, or a house, or a sushi restaurant?

I think you shot too low, and there's no good way to make it RP acceptable.

Could you head around the bend and get more of the depot in your shot? Now it just blends in.

Thats not gonna get in either, the locomotive is dead center in the frame. If shooting from this location, the train needs to be closer, or you need to be at more of an angle to the train, or the other side of the tracks. This kind of lighting is never gonna work either unless its raining, snowing, earthquake or tornado is happening or something more interesting than an a UP widecab is the lead engine.

As I said Im not summiting that one it was just for reference. I know about the lighting, the lighting sucked through out the afternoon, as storms were trying to build. It was just a moment when the sun shown on the 7679.
