Photo Comment:  This northward facing aerial picture shows the Sleep Inn motel circled in blue.  Two separate railroad line can be seen from the motel.  The track closest to the motel is the Norfolk Southern Railway.  The other track seen at the bottom of the photo is the Kansas City Southern Railway.  Both lines are single tracked, but as you can tell, well kept.  The location is on the southwest side of the city, where I-72 crosses IL Route 4.  We are unsure of the number of trains that pass through this area daily.
