I don't quite get the composition of the shot myself. To me it looks like the type of shot you'd get if you happened across a train on your way home from work, as opposed to something that was planned in advance. The light was certainly nice, but it wasn't at the correct angle relative to the train (half of the nose is in shadow), and, without being a power infrastructure enthusiast, I don't see a whole lot in the way of other interesting stuff to look at. The wide angle suggests a landscape shot, but all I can see is the back of an industrial area, three types of telephone / electrical lines, and a bunch of grass, none of which are particularly compelling to me.

Technically speaking it's underexposed, but even if it were perfectly exposed, the scene wouldn't be something I'd spend much time looking at.
