Default Suggestions on Cropping

This just got rejected partly for bad cropping. I was wondering how should I crop this? This is cropped from the origninal image, so should I put more space in or take some out, and from where?

Thanks.

This shot violates "The Rule of Thirds." The subject (BNSF 2836) is smack dab in the middle of the shot, a general no-no. Put the train on more of a 1/3 line; you can do this by cutting off some of the left and the bottom. Or go vertical. Good luck!

I was thinking about it, and started wondering, could I use the original image?
or is there too much dead space?

Way too much dead space in the uncropped, in my view.

Also, for next time, it is too bad you cut off part of the crane/lift thing in the intermodal yard - it would make a nice 2nd element in the picture.
