Photo Comment:  The Fountain City Motel is circled in yellow on the aerial photo.  The railroad is across Rout 35, and a short walk down Mill Street.  At the end of Mill Street the railroad crosses the road at grade, and a parking lot along the Mississippi River which is located along the railroad.
