Default Heritage Unit Bad Color Depth

I got hit with bad color depth or saturated not sure which the screener is saying is wrong. I did not boost the saturation the sun was out and low in the sky when the photo was taken. Any suggestions ?

Looks like it has a bit of a red cast but the bigger issue is the cropping, why did you cut off the train?

looks to be a slight red / magenta tint to the shot. Maybe a touch under exposed too.

It looks good to me except the sky has a weird tone to it...

Bad cropping is up next.

Next time, point the camera more to the left to avoid cutting the train.

Still too much on the right and not enough on the left because the train still gets cut off. If you don't have it with these shots, remember for the future, let the cars completely disappear behind trees, bridges, anything to prevent the train being cut off awkwardly. Don't just focus on the engine, even if it a heritage unit, show the whole scene.
