Photo Comment:  The Google Street photo to the right shows the Howard Johnson Hotel circled in yellow.  You can see the single track railroad in the foreground.  About 2 blocks north of the hotel is the old restored train station, now used by the Spring City Chamber of Commerce.  Next to the train station is a bay window caboose on display as well as a gazebo, which maybe an ideal place to be while waiting for the next train to pass.  I am uncertain of the train frequency on this route.
