Default What in the HUE should I do???

I can agree the blues are strong, but is that my issue?

It's too red. I moved the tint slider toward the green to correct. Maybe reduce color temp as well.

Photo looks underexposed. Moving the exposure up a notch should make the reds and blues a little more natural-looking. If you can, tone down the white areas. You're losing detail in them.

Unfortunately, I can't put a histogram on this image with the computer I am currently on, but to my eye, this shot looks a bit overexposed. The whites are really bright and the shot lacks contrast. Look at the top of the tower and the loco nose.

I might experiment with the exposure and contrast sliders. Start by bringing exposure down a bit. Another possibility is to try a dose of highlight reduction.

Too bright, low contrast.....

It doesn't look level - definitely a nono - and for my tastes, not a good composition - other views may or definitely will vary. For me, too much shadowed freight car sides, obstructed structure, and train uninterestingly far in the distance.
