Default Composition too tight: B&O C-2478

By today's standards, yeah, I suppose it's too tight. By 1985 standards, not so much, I think. Who could afford to waste Kodachrome on a bunch of superfluous stuff? Particularly on a "roster" shot of a museum piece on static display. (Different story, of course, if were talking about an operating train out on the mainline, where some space at the edges is important, I think.) And here all along I was quite happy with the in-camera tight crop as part of my Kodachrome conservation efforts. I guess that "fill the frame" motto wasn't the best idea I've ever had.
Thoughts?
