Default Does this crop work

I used the rule of thirds and seems to work well with this shot.what do others think.

To my eye, the leading locomotive is quite centered... and the crossbuck on the left is pretty awkward. I would show more of the left, take some off the right.

I like the shot but the cropping on that cross buck is too tight. I would get rid of the cross buck all together by taking off some from the left.

Thanks I made an adjustment to the left im going to leave the crossbuck in at this I kind of like the weathered old crossbucks common on this line.

If you ever get a chance to shoot a shot like this next time, move your car out of the frame. To see the spare tire poking in is a little distracting.

I think you stood too close. You need to take a few steps back to bring the crossbucks a little closer to the rail (as well as eliminate the chance of getting the tail end of your car in there). Or, change your angle a bit if you can. It looks like the front of the crossbucks had sunlight, so I'm wondering why you didn't try to work that in instead of getting the shadowed backside.
