the train is way too tight, does the original have a little extra room in it?

And your photo is cropped to square as well... 1024x768 usually is the recommended size...

The actual 896x626 is actually less square, 1.43:1, than your recommended 4:3 (1.33:1) ratio. Don't confuse with erroneous advice, please.

With bad cropping, I agree with Nathan it is too tight, but remember that sometimes that rejection is given because small distracting stuff creeps into the shot unnoticed. Here, there is an unattached small lamp fixture on the right edge, cut that off, and otherwise loosed it up a bit if you can.
