Photo Comment: A picture taken from Becker drive looks at the Holiday Inn Express with the single track railroad in the foreground.  This is one of the few semi-open views you can get from the motel.  It can be easy to follow a train that passes the motel westbound, as this branch ends in Roanoke Rapids.

Photo Comment: This photo taken from the southbound lane from I-95 looks west down the single track railroad.  The Sleep Inn motel is seen to the left (green roof).  The best railroad view would be any of the rooms seen in this photo.  These are east side rooms, high floor railroad end of the building.  The best view would be in the area of this bridge, that's where the least amount of tree's and brush are located.  Road to the right side of the picture is Becker Drive.
