Photo Comment:  Under construction, the aerial view shows the rear of the motel with a clear view of the double track railroad.  The motel planted evergreen trees along the track, likely trying to muffle the sound, as we all know that doesn't work, you will still have the sound, but the view will diminish as the trees continue to grow.
