Photo Comment:  The Bing Satellite view shows the Super 8 motel circled in yellow.  The railroad tracks are directly behind the motel, a clear view.  Note the grade crossing near the motel will warrant passing trains to sound their horns past the motel, but don't worry too much, this is not a busy line.

Photo Comment:  The Bing Satellite Photo shows the Days in being the long building near the right side of the picture.  The railroad line can be seen along the left side of the picture.  Note the grade crossing near the motel will warrant approaching trains to sound their horns for the crossing.  Don't worry, this is not a busy rail line.  Expect only a handful of trains during a 24-hour period.

Photo Comment:  The Google Street View shows the back-side of the motel as seen from Vanocker Canyon Road (across the track).  The building closest to the highway overpass is the area of the motel that you want to be in to see trains.  The windows you see (2 floors of them to the right of the restaurant) are the rooms that would give you the best railroad view.
