Is the unlevel horizon the only issue or do you guys think I'm I going to have my work cut out?

Cropping will be next, then somebody for sure's gonna say cloudy/common even tho you can see distinct shadows. They don't like the back end of the train cut off by the frame, although shots like that do get in sometimes. I think it's salvageable, but maybe not for here. Try cropping tighter, close to the small signal on the left and the signal on the right (after leveling, of course), then lose some sky and a bit of foreground to keep close to the present ratio. Good luck!

My suggestion, if you have the room to do it, would be to remove a good chunk of the sky and add to the bottom to emphasize the tracks as a good, strong set of leading lines. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea to take a smidge off the sides, as well.

As for the horizon, looks like it needs a bit of CCW rotation.

It made it, thanks to both pieces of advice. I appreciate your seasoned feedback.

I think another issue you may run into, that looks like pretty blatant trespassing.

Good. But it was still trespassing and the younger guys who may see this shot might not be so wise.
