Comments: This is an older style Motor Inn. Unpaved parking lot. I confirmed the location & view of the railroad, but I have not stayed here.

The Union Pacific Railroad mainline is marked in red, you can see a train as well in the photo. The blue circle marks the location of the pedestrian bridge. The bridge is useful for taking photographs and video of passing trains.
