Railroads past Hotel:  Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad (branch line owned by Genesee & Wyoming).  Not a busy rail line.  Front desk said there is only one train each afternoon.  I checked in at 6:45pm and departed at 11am, one short train did pass at 10:00am heading west.  I was actually at the trolley museum just down the track (5-minute drive from the motel).  The same rail line passes the trolley museum.  Looks like the branch line ends just west of the trolley museum but several rail customers are in the area.

Railroad View:  Excellent View!  Any room on any floor on the back side of the motel will offer a railroad view.  I had a room on the 3rd floor which would have been a great view if a train had past during my stay.  If you are aware of a train coming, there is plenty of open space outside to photograph & video passing trains.   Trains can be seen at night (if they pass at night ?), but there is not enough light to video after dark from the room.
