Photo Comment:  The aerial photo shows the motel (long building) which sits on top of a hill.  The clear view of the double track mainline can easily be seen. 

Bottom Photo: A westbound CSX freight speeds past the motel.  Since all rooms are exterior corridors, it takes little effort to get photos from the parking lot.  This area has many locations which are ideal for train-watching.
