Route 460 uses the former Virginian right of way for its east bound lanes from Rich Creek to Narrows and perhaps from about a mile east of Glyn Lynn to Rich Creek (someone else can correct this section as needed).

My understanding is the 460 is essentially the Virginian Right of Way. Going to and from Roanoke, at Narrows, there are tracks on both sides of the New River. Are both of those N&W, is this one of the areas where N&W and Virginian competed?  Do I have it all wrong?
Thank you.
