Picture Comments: These photo's acquired from the motels web site show the railroad view from the front of the motel. A quick walk from your caboose puts you on the front stage! Trains do toot the whistle for the local crossing next to the motel. This is Amish Country; the area is flooded with attractions to visit. Besides the immediate area, take the kids to Dutch Wonderland (Lancaster, PA) for a day. (Center Photo): Photo taken inside a caboose.
