Well, if this sucks, I like sucking!

Nicely different composition and scene. I like how you kept the one spike anchoring the frame in the lower left, and just enough of the station to give us context to follow the line back up the track. The off kilter frame works for me, only nit is I it could use just a tad more sharpness on the foreground rail, perhaps by shooting at f/16 or smaller rather than 5.6.

I think the visual line would be much stronger if the track were parallel to the right edge. There would still be an interesting diagonal going on, but I wouldn't be so distracted by the edge.

The rail dominates too much for my liking

Overall it's good, I'm not sure about the angle or maybe even croping the top of the photo. JMO!

The interesting combination of straight rail and architectural curves makes for a very pleasing image. The angle of the rail is unigue and something that is very much out of the ordinary providing a senes of depth and dimention not often seen in images like that. Good DOF control and almost perfect lighting. The background could be a little sharper, but it works as it is. A good solid entry into the challenge - both a technical and artistic success. Well done.
