Default Bad cropping

So I may or may not resubmit this photo; I fear it might get high sun on the third go round.... If I do try, thoughts on how to crop? It got hit with bad cropping twice in a row. I have very little room to add on the left, right and top and nothing left to add on the bottom.

I think your next rejection is a PIQ... Surprised you didn't get that to begin with. Quality looks pretty off to me.

Michael, the first thing I see is a whole lot of foreground with nothing but tracks. I'd lose some of that and some off the right, maybe a tad off the left to keep from going too short vertically. Here's a quick crop job to demonstrate:

The next thing I see is the lead loco of the far train is obscured. Do you have an earlier frame with just a bit of separation between trains? At first I thought it was leaning a little CW but when I enlarged the image and applied a grid the building was aligned, so I guess that's just illusion. I can't speak to the image quality as my eyes are not good enough to detect any problems that may be there.
Cheers,
Wayne

Do you have a frame where neither engine is obscured? That's the first thing I noticed and I just can't get past it.

The previous frame is a few second back unfortunately, so the engines are just too far apart to make it work. Thanks for the comments but I may have to let this one go.

I cannot lie. It was really bugging the heck out of me.
