Photo Comment:  Top photo shows the standard motel building, a 1-story exterior corridor motor inn.  Middle photo shows the 5 cabooses; for an extra fee you can stay in a caboose.  The aerial picture faces westward.  The building with the red roof is the actual motel building.  The 5 cabooses can be seen to the right of the building.  The single track railroad can be seen across Route 415, behind some local businesses.  There is a open area where you should be able to view the passing trains.  This aerial image was captured during the AM hours, photographs and video of trains from the motel would be best in the afternoon.  This is not a busy rail line.  Expect no more than one daily round trip on this line.
