Photo Comment:  The aerial photo shows the Country Inn motel located next to the single track railroad.  There are trees along the parking lot, but those will not effect the view from the rooms, in addition the railroad is slightly elevated past the motel.  Rooms on the front of the motel may have a slight advantage to view the railroad.
