Needs a little more, I think.

It's also leaning to the right slighty. Level it off the wall of the building just left of the train.

I think it's a nice photo. It is a little too contrasty, but you're shooting in overcast conditions, which mean the lighting is flat to begin with. I'm not sure you can compensate to make it acceptable to RP. If you're correcting level as Mathieu suggests, try cropping slightly on the right. The sliver of roadway and tree branch are distracting.

I had the same thought, but I didn't want to sound too nitpicky.

Well,I gave it another go with the contrast reduced (which in some magical way made the tree branch in the top right corner go away !!),bit it's now on the Railpictures Roundabout -
