I'd say you've got your wish then!
Although it could be said that it's 'just' a shot of a railway line, it did catch my eye and it's held my attention.
That the little bit of damage to the top of the rail further draws your eye inwards.
You say that you've converted it to mono to improve the contrast and I think that mono suits it. I'd be inclined to go a stage further and make it properly black and white, or apply a dou-tone.
There are plenty of possibilities here.
Hope this helps.
It's a competent attempt at a perspective shot. Simply changing to black and white will not increase the contrast, but it will enable you to change the tonal relationships between colours by the use of coloured filters in channel mixer or selective curve adjustments. You can up the contrast in colour.
What black and white has also done, is to simplify the composition by removing unnecessary information and making the image more graphic in nature.
I would be inclined to crop about a third to a half of the sky off, and try it flipped horizontally to improve the impact of the image.
