I purchased that card when it was on eBay, or at least the same card a few years ago.
Before I examined it, I felt it was not actually Blue Ridge, as the territory did not match the location, but it did match Shawsville and the design of the original Shawsville depot.

>> 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.
