Railroad View: Excellent. Clear view out the back side of the motel on all floors. Tracks are about 200' away across a grass field.
Railroads past Hotel: CSX
Notes: In Sept 2009, the grass field behind the motel had a for sale sign on it. If something is built on it; the railroad view maybe gone. Note, the BING Map on Fairfield’s web site doesn't mark the motel in the correct spot. On the "Aerial" map, its located just south, where the dirt area is. It’s a new motel.
Comments: During my stay, rail traffic was light. It was Labor Day weekend, only 4 trains passed during my 15-hour visit.
Photo Comments: The only train in daylight that I saw was this northbound CSX freight, the 3 engines had about 88-cars behind it. The room windows open so you can hear the trains in advance. This is a brand new motel, very nice, the complimentary breakfast was excellent!
