Great question Tony, I live here and don’t really know the track alignment.  I have a general idea of the location of the station and how the tracks ran in from Smethport and left to travel to Elkland/Todd.  I’ll ask a fried who works in the research section of the Ashe County Library is there is a track plan or city plat which would show the alignment.  I’m thinking the rails to Todd were removed after a flood in 1937 but may be off by several years.
