The train is right in the middle, following the "rule of thirds" increases you chance of the screeners finding it appealing. Perhaps make things a bit tighter, bring in the right hand side to the first tree, and cut out some of either the sky or the grass.

There is a lot of empty sky filling the top half of the image. Crop that out and see where that puts you.

The sky is so uninteresting, cut out the sky. The ground is uninteresting also but at least the ground has features we can see. The sky is just flat. So shift the line up, not too much it'll make it unbalanced, and crop out some of the sky.
