Railroad View: Excellent View!  Located across from SEPTA's Norristown Line.  Trains blow's horn for the crossings, but just a couple short toot's.  Most trains pass from 5:30am to midnight.  Rooms on the front of the building are preferred for a railroad view, but rooms on the east or west sides will be OK as well.   

Railroads past Hotel: SEPTA (commuter railroad) Norristown Line / Conrail Shared Assets (Local freight only, runs when needed).

Notes:    For adventures, 5-10 minute walk will put you on the Norfolk Southern line across the river, railroad photography is great in this area.  The NS line hosts about 15 trains during a 24-hour period.  The Marriott hotel in West Conshohocken is an alternative, its located on the NS Line, and you can also see the SEPTA trains across the river.   

Comments:   

Photo Comment:  How's that for a view!  All that you need is a better mix of train's.  99% of passing train's are electric MU SEPTA commuter train's.  Most trains are just 2-cars.  The top photo is taken from a bike / walking path along the railroad.
