Photo Comment:  The aerial picture looks southward.  A Washington Metro train crosses over Georgia Avenue.  The Holiday Inn Express is marked in yellow.  The distant view looks down Georgia Avenue.  Binoculars or a zoom lens on a camera / video camera would be best to see/caputre the passing train's. There are 4-main track's on this line.  The center two belong to the Metro, the outside tracks are used by CSX / Amtrak / MARC.  The MARC Silver Spring train station / Metro Station is a quick cab ride away from the hotel, or a 15 minute walk.
