My initial reaction was to lose some foreground. But if you do that, I think you're either going to be cutting off the train awkwardly, or end up with an aspect ratio somewhere close to 16:9. Unfortunately, I think the train is just too close to the camera to make this shot work.

I'm with Paolo here, definitely lose some foreground. I'd try that and to add some sky to the top, but that might cause the train to become too centered. I'm not sure it has a chance, but give it a shot.

3x5 crop is what you need.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a 3x5 crop?

I made a test crop, maybe better maybe worse not sure, but here it is attached.

Thanks,
