Photo Comment:  Homewood Suites is seen to the upper left of this photo (white roof).  The railroad tracks can be seen in the lower left hand corner of the corner.  High floors should give you a view of the passing trains.  The buildings (and water tanks) and trees will obstruct some of the view.  But there should be enough open space to video or photograph a passing train with a zoom lens.
