Default Advice on these two

First up, how can I level this one? The angle might be throwing it off to either LOOK unlevel or maybe it really is. The closest thing to a straight line are the trees in the background.

On this one, it looks sharp to me, but the headlights are blown out. Is this a shot killer or appealable?

#1 - trees are not vertical (look at the big one above "tracks" for instance), so I don't think it is level.

#2 - doesn't look sharp to me. Look at the ballast immediately in front of the train, and the grass. They are quite blurry. Even if depth of field is shallow, I can't find a plane of focus that is sharp. Windshield area on the engine doesn't look sharp.

The headlight doesn't bother me, don't know what RP will think of it.

I'll have to go back and look at home, esp. on the train shot. This monitor is so bad here at the station that I can't tell. I know I have one or two other shots from that series. But I liked this one because it was basically on the road.
