That sort of looks like an area along Route 220 south of Roanoke, toward Boone’s Mill. Today 220 is a 4-lane divided road. Maybe?

Subject: Where Is It? Wednesday
Can anyone help us identify the location of this photo that came to the NWHS archives as an unlabeled print?
(Cropped version attached; original version at the following URL:)
It's a signaled single track line, with position light signals and N&W style code line ("telegraph") poles, in fairly hilly territory, with a road roughly following the tracks at a lower level. But beyond that there is little else in the photo to identify the location.
Our archives volunteers had a few guesses on Saturday, but we were unable to positively identify the location.
Answers, educated guesses, and unsupported opinions are all welcome!
