SWP: dark is one thing, important dark is another. You have a potentially interesting scene under the station roof, but it's a little dark to fully appreciate it. I'm not saying I can't see certain details, because I can see everything; I am saying that there is a difference between "bright overcast dark" and "in the shadows dark."

Amtrak: has a dark feel to it. It isn't wrong, but with the sky mostly hidden, so the setting is mostly the dark woods, it feels much darker than the Jersey Central shot even though I am thinking they are both exposed and processed in about the same way.

If it doesn't matter to you much, I am thinking if you increase exposure/brightness by a half stop and both get in.
