Better. I think that in your case "too far away" really meant "too close," as in the foreground rails were too close, making the train seem distant. Really close foreground rails are a form of distortion, of drawing attention, and since most of the frame is a classic scenic, the foreground seemed inappropirate.

That's my story, and I'm not sticking to it. I may come up with something completely different the next time I look.

Very pleasant rail scene, not to even mention the holdover SOO power.
As was mentioned if you had shot it with the train in the lower part scene and more of the tree canopy it would look different but not sure that would have done the trick.

Wondering if you have a shot with the engine closer just before the tree on the right before the house but past the fence, just so the tree is not growing out of the cab.

Here is one where they just cut-off the bottom(or top) of the image, must be on the border of the aspect limits.???

So just thinking if train were a little closer and a little cropped off bottom??

I would have taken a frame where the upper corner of the cab (cab left) fit perfectly in the gap between the two trees in the background.

Edit: Looks like Bob feels the same way.

It certainly flirts with "Obstructed"!

2nd edit did the trick, and, yeah, slightly different frame. Sadly this is the best sunlight this job will ever see, based on start time and track angle, plus they always have to shove to the mill. Thanks for the help guys!

I'm surprised they didn't reject that for backlit...
