This shot makes sense in black and white because of the industrial nature of the subject. I like the unusual angle and that there is not too much contrast. The gravel and spatters on the underside of the train car add interest, as does the other train car and the chute in the upper left section.
The low angle, with the track beginning in the lower right corner adds a sense of movement, enhancing the overall impact.
I'm a little distracted by the shadow in the lower left corner, but I can understand its inclusion because of the cropping.
