The railroad with its freight trains passes close by the hotel – this video* was taken standing on the front porch. It’s probably less than the 100 feet I mention in the video (I was a bit sleepy at that time of day, which also explains the shaky camerawork!)
It was actually quite a short train as they go!
The date was 4 November 2011. Next day – Day 5: Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.
