Not really blurry, so much as soft. Needs a shot of Unsharp Mask. Also could use some better cropping as the signs on either side are cut off awkwardly.

Not sure if I agree with you Chris. I see some blur near the nose. The image suffers from some poor image quality (or shadows abuse).

The cropping does need to be improved as does the color.

And before Jim sounds off, it needs to be rotated CW somewhat. I kinda agre with what both Chris and Chase sid, even though they kinda contradicted each other. It does look a bit soft and maybe there's some bad image quality too. The cropping is off as well. I'm not sure how I feel about the shot other than that. I don't know if the composition is weak or strong. If you had caught some motion blue of the train, you'd probably have a winner. Otherwise, it's significant foreground clutter.

I think the composition is weak, or could be made stronger. The post on the left is foreground clutter to me. I would consider turning your body a bit to the right, so you are not aiming the camera directly at the engine. Then, you miss the post, capture some or all of the wheelchair lift, but bring it the station wall and get a better view of its signage.

On the other hand, the bike rack and its shadow are nice. The ceiling is rather dull and a different composition might minimize that also. But I think my main theme is that you are using the station as a form of foreground obstruction and you need to capture it in a more interesting way.

Also, personal taste I suppose, but if you are going to frame on three sides you really ought to do some perspective control and get all your verticals vertical.
