Default Cropping Advice

I had this one dinged for poor cropping...

I played around with the crop a little bit and I personally thought this looked pretty good, but hey...what do I know!! What would be the forum's opinion on a better way to crop it? Thanks!

I'll be honest. I don't know what they want here. The cropping seems obvious. It *may* not exactly subscribe to the Rules of Third, but the only thing I can see is that it is cropped too tight.

I'd get the locomotives to be a little bit lower in the shot... more sky, less track on the bottom.

Nice shot.
