Bottom Photo:  A view of the hotel from Route 562 shows a passing freight train.  Note the brush in the photo blocks much of the passing train on the south side (behind the train).  This brush may diminish much of the railroad view during warmer months.  Winter maybe a better time to achieve a railroad view from this hotel.
