Default More Cropping Advice

I have tried to crop this one every which way and I keep getting docked for bad cropping...

It seems that cropping has been the downfall of me lately. What are your recommendations? I tried cropping it to include the rear of the second train on the left, I tried cutting out the second train completely, and I've tried cropping it as if the second train isn't there. I just can't seem to get it right. Let me know what you think...thanks!

its a bit to closes on the right side and a bit light to. Needs more room in front of the GE.

The second train is not a problem. In fact, can you show some more on the left, along with "leading space" to the right? All of your crops are about the same, which leads me to suspect your original shot is just too tight to give good composition.

I do have much more space to the left in the original, but unfortunately I do not have much more to the right that I can show. Probably not much I can do for this particular shot I guess. Thanks for the advice!
