Railroad View: Fair View.  You need a room on the 2nd floor on the front (west side) of the building.  Although Motel 6 is next door to the Quality Inn, Quality Inn offers a better railroad view.  There is a grain silo in front of Motel 6, taking away what would be a nice view of the railroad.  A room the the north-west side of the Motel 6 maybe the best chance for a view of the railroad.
