These dont seem to be lacking color to me.. possibly over saturated but I believe it is the setting sun that may give them this feel.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

I'd say remove just a little bit of red saturation in the 1st & 2nd shots.

Too much red. The cropping is off too in the second shot. Train down too low in the frame.

They all look a little too warm to me, even with your current rejection. But to tell you the truth, I would go with your current rejection (Of course, using the original out of camera shot) and give it a little bit of color, just a splash, a hint, a touch. In other words, not too much. Right now, it does look a bit washed out, maybe? I dunno, something just doesn't look right. If you add some color to the trees, the red will be blown out with color. Do some selective saturation here, if your using CS2 like I am, create a saturation layer and select your greens. Then select your reds and boost the red ever so slightly.
