Got hit for bad crop nad was wondering what way to go?

Yep. Needs to be tighter on all sides, esp. the right, left and top. And then work on the color. Bad Color rejection is coming up next. Too much red, it looks like.

I disagree with Joe and his "marginal photographic advice." Yes, it needs to be tighter on the top (don't cut off the top of the mountain though), the left and the bottom, but I wouldn't cut off the right. In fact, do you have any more on the right, like a tree or rock or something that train disappears behind? If you cut more off the right, the train will be cut off awkwardly (it already partially is). If you have something that hides it, it's a more natural transition.
