I'd say the first one will be much more dramatic if you crop vertically to capture the train popping out of the tunnel; you don't need to have the entire headwall structure included to make the scene work. The tree roots don't add anything to the composition.

The second shot isn't balanced well to my eye. If you don't have room to go wider, as Mark suggested, take some off the top (roughly about the top of the smoke plume at right) and left (just inside the bare, twisted tree trunk). See how that looks to you.
