Default Help! From Bad to Worse!

This shot was rejected for cropping and when I re-cropped it was worse.
Is the right crop somewhere in between? Suggestions?

EEEEK! Think the angle is too low and I'm not diggin that parked (?) train on the left. I would kick this one to the personal Randy, sorry Good approach to the shot though.

Ben may be onto something with that. The wider shot is my favorite of the two, but even then, there's a lot of station platform just sort of sitting there in the foreground, and the only engine (not there even has to be one) has a pole through it. Maybe a re-shoot with a headlight down the tracks filling some of that dead space, or even less platform and more sky, could help the image a lot.

My initial impression was that the left third of the image was the weaker part. Maybe something like this, where the vanishing point isn't close to the middle of the image?
