This is just a guess: Alleghany Springs is associated with Shawsville and was located several miles off the railroad up the South Fork of the Roanoke River. Could the station at what we know today as Shawsville have then been called Alleghany? Even today some refer to this area as “ up Alleghany.”

Subject: AM&O RR - Question about Allegheny Station
I can't find anything in the online archives about this, and will do more research at my next opportunity to visit Salem Avenue, but can anyone tell me in the meantime about the Alleghany (sic) Station on the AM&O? I'm wondering where exactly the Alleghany Station was situated? I am attaching two auction photos which show the station in an 1870s stereoview by E.& H.T. Anthony Company. This New York stereoview manufacturer sent photographers throughout western Virginia and produced several photo sets including scenes along the AM&O, Blue Ridge Springs, and so on. I'm attaching two images of the stereoview for everyone to see what I'm talking about.
