I think you might need to move the trains down in each picture. Do you have more to work with so you can reduce the bottom and increase the top a little?

Take some off the left on the first one, and some off the bottom and a smidge off the right on the second one

It's not the cropping issue, but you are waaay to good a photographer to submit back to back identical wedgies with different trains in the same position. It's your prerogative, of course.

Bad crop - 8 out of 10 are centered.

First - centered top to bottom.

Second - a bit high (better then centered but odd crop as the ballast does not add much).

J - I agree, but disagree. It depends on your aim for RP.

Post what you took, as you took it, to share and document what you saw and let each photo be judged on it's own merit or post strictly with the desire for most possible views? Each has an advantage - which is most important?

Wait - I see what you were doing, it was not the ballast, but inclusion of the tree.

But, I don't think the odd crop (train high up in the frame) is a worthy sacrifice.
More sky. I think you can sacrifice part of the brush /tree.
