Train is too centered top to bottom. The crop also cuts off the electrical box awkwardly on the left and may be too tight to the signal on the right.

Try using a 4/6 cropping ratio. The shot is too tight on the front and back. Give it some more room. All the power lines are kinda distracting as well.

Too tight front and back? Maybe. Too loose on the bottom? For sure, to my eye.

Too centered. Why would I want to see all that dirt?
