Photo Comment:  The Google Satellite image shows the Best Western hotel circled in yellow. Due to a small group of tall trees, the red & blue lines represent the field of view from the north side rooms.   Red line show mark the field of view looking east, the blue line show the field of view looking west.  Some second floor rooms on the east & west sides may also have a railroad view.  The railroad line is elevated, which helps the excellent view.
