It looks like the camera's focal length is too high, try bringing the camera closer and the focal length down. It might yield a more realistic result.

Will think about it, thanks.
I've tried to avoid perspective distortions of wagons and get better scene composing (background/fence/railways)... still learning :giggle:

No problem, I'm always glad to help people in the Blender community out. When the focal length is so far in, it looks like a photograph of something small, like a model train.
