How about this one, Andrew? Taking your suggestions to heart, I corrected the tilt and vertical distortion and darkened up the shadows and sky a touch. Plus, I cropped it so that the box car comes out the top right corner and the rail the bottom right. I also have the rail now disappearing in the mid left edge. I think it has helped the compostition greatly!

Great shot - good perspective!

I certainly prefer the revised composition - with one exception - the vertical division - right - on the box car now provides a 'stop' to the dynamic of the train. Trim it so that the corrugations run to the edge (as in the original) and the flow is still there...
