Slides with dark areas sure don't scan well; that is one big black blob. If you can, scan it much brighter and then bring the exposure down, while preserving some of the detail in the trucks. I don't see anything that would blow out with a brighter scan.

I've got some slides just like this, albeit with less interesting content and composed much worse.

Should you get it to work, please despeckle the sky and then gaussian blur all those dots out of it, thanks.
