NO! The Southside Railroad did not become the Durham Branch. The Durham line was built much later than the Southside.

If the Southside Railroad is what became the Durham Branch of the N&W, the connection was just west of the tunnel about two miles west of the Lynchburg passenger station. It was also just before the line passed under the Southern Railway trestle built as part of the "new" Southern route through Lynchburg in 1912. The location can still be seen by looking at Google maps.

No idea of the junction of SS & V&T!
