Is was about 10 yards upstream of where the old bridge was.   After you crossed the bridge from the Virginian side you took a sharp left to go up a Ramp /Bridge that crossed the N& W tracks. Once across, you took another sharp left on to "Main Street."  Between the Ramp/Bridge and the N&W Station was a road that followed the river up stream. There was very little spare space between the Ramp/Bridge, the road, and the Station.
