Default Help Cropping?

Well tried this one I like the picture but the composition I know was pretty bad I am afraid if I crop any more the sizing would be bad can anyone help?

I think there would be an acceptable, tighter crop were it not for the obstructing telephone poles that will likely elicit a rejection for foreground clutter.

I think the further back you place the poles, the better. At least get them off the lead motor, the first two if possible. Also, let the train trail out of frame instead of cutting it off as you do. I think for this location, both of those options might get a shot on. In some way, the poles do actually help the shot IMO. Also, in this shot, the train is centered top to bottom in the frame.
