    First I would get out of the car. Then I would try to come up with a different angle that would seperate it from just a snap shot. Get in the middle of the tracks and shot from a low angle. Find something strange or unique to add to the picture. Photography is about perspective.

    Well... I go with Cosmo here and say: train tracks have been photographed so often before, to get a photo that is different from the others you need to become creative. Which begins with not "snapping while inside the car" but getting out and working on composition.
    Those clouds plus the rails look like they could have offered you quite the opportunity.

    If you were totally short of time and only just wanted to take a photo, no matter how, and you want to make this one interesting afterwards, I'd suggest you try all sorts of crop edits on this to see if one of them "pops" in the end.
