As for cutting the train off with the edge of the frame, I have always seen it as a general composition rule. Most times, not cutting it off abruptly creates a better/more pleasing composition, but as you can see here, its not a hard rule, I think this works best because of where its cropped.
But then modelers are going to want to see the entire car.

I never quite understood why (to some) it's OK for terrain or vegetation to "cut off" the train, but not the edge of the photo. Is this preference an extension of the wedgie mentality?
