Photo Comment:  This photo looks north from South Main Street (Route 478), the railroad runs along the east side of this road.  The Holiday Inn Express is clearly seen to the right.  Since the rear of the motel has a facing of the railroad, we recommend the rooms on the rear for the best railroad view.
