Railroad View:  Fair Distant View.  Ask for a high floor room on the back of the motel, rooms closer to the road (Route 63) may offer a better railroad view.  You will need binoculars / zoom lens to get a good view of passing trains.  The railroad crossing within view of the motel is not protected by flashers which means trains will blow their horn for the crossing.  This is a short line railroad, so expect no more then one round trip train per day. 

Railroads past Hotel:  Indiana & Ohio Railroad.  (Former Pennsylvania Rail Road).  This is a branch line that runs south to Mason, Ohio.

Notes:    While in the area, be sure to visit Lebanon, OH.  Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad, a division of Cincinnati Railway Co (CNRY) operates a tourist railroad on the former I&O Railroad between Lebanon and Mason.

Photo Comment: The aerial view shows the motel circled in yellow, the railroad is marked in red, and the view is shown in orange.  It was difficult for us to decide if we should list this motel, but since there was nothing else in the immeadiate area we decided to g ahead.  Plus, maybe you will see a train!
