Photo Comment:  The aerial picture shows the Super 8 motel circled in yellow.  The Rail Runner train station can easily be seen complete with a covered crosswalk to access the parking lot on the east side of the tracks.  From a 2nd floor room you will be looking across both the motels parking lot, and the commuter railroad parking lot to view passing trains.
