Photo Comment:  The aerial picture shows Comfort Suites circled in yellow.  The double track main that passes the motel is used by BNSF & Amtrak.  The Metra trains only come up as far as the station platforms the end near the motel property.  The roundhouse seen is the former CB&Q (Burlington Route) Railroad roundhouse.  The historic building is now Two Brothers Restaurant.  As you can see, you can take a Metra train from Chicago to this motel.
