Default Sunset shot rejection

Hi guys,
I wanted to get some advice on how to fix this shot so it can be accepted in the database if possible. I was really happy with this shot and i hope i can get it into the DB. I cropped it this way to keep the orange sky, and the shine on the rails but apparently the composition is not what the site is looking for, help on the cropping would be helpful.

Thanks
Nikos

I think it has to much sky. The one killer for me is the distracting light to the right of the cars, I assume its from another engine?

Too much clutter, not enough train.

Thanks Ottergoose for the edit, much appreciated, that vertical crop looks great. I will give that a try.
and yes btw: that other light is the local switcher providing the lighting.
