Default Bad Cropping Issue

Always seem to get bad cropping when I shoot here. It's equally cropped on either side of the building, and the power isn't centred in the photo. Any suggestions? http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...76&key=2798074

I would say it is less a problem of cropping as it is of composition. If the train was surrounded by green, maybe it would work. But since the trains mashed against the building, it is lost.

The power's not centered, but the train is centered vertically in the shot and that's why you got the cropping reject. Add more on top or bottom, preferably bottom since it's more interesting, to move the train higher or lower in the frame.
