Railroads past Motel: Long Island Rail Road / New York & Atlantic Railway.  Over 70-Train's daily use this line.  Most train's are electric powered MU (Multiple-Unit) Passenger train's, with a strong handful of double decker diesel powered commuter train's thrown in.  Don't expect to see any freight's, New York & Atlantic freight train's would only operate past here when heading east of Babylon to switch a few customers on a weekly bases.  Most of those weekly train's access the Babylon branch via the Central Branch, located east of here. (Meaning they don't pass Massapequa at all).  LIRR work train's maybe seen time to time, but are not scheduled.

Photo Comment:  The Best Western motel is the white building in the center of the photo.  The elevated double track railroad is seen along the bottom of the photo.  2nd story rooms will be needed to see above the traffic on the busy Sunrise Highway.
