Railroad View:  Good.  A room on the north side of the building 3rd floor or higher will be needed for a good view.  Looking out over the busy I-93 will give you a view of the MBTA.  Rooms on the south side will not give you a view due to buildings and trees.  Other then the subway line being busy, I'm not sure if other types of trains operate over this line.

Railroads past Hotel:   MBTA / MBTA Transit (subway)

Comments: 

Photo Comment:  Holiday Inn Express is circled, for a railroad view you will be looking across I-93, the view is clear though you will need to stretch you neck to look at the right.  There are 4 tracks in this photo; the track closest to I-93 is the Southampton Avenue Yard lead.  The yard hosts the shops of the MBTA locomotives & commuter car fleet.  Commuter trains may pull down to the Holiday Inn for head room in the yard.
