AM&O RR - Question about Allegheny Station

I checked two reproduction Official Guides, one for June 1868 and one 
for June 1893.  These bracket the AM&O days.  The 1868 Guide station 
index listed only one Alleghany and that was in PA.

The 1893 Guide station index listed two Alleghany's (the usual southern 
spelling), one in TN and one on the C&O in VA.  In addition there were 
two stations with Allegheny (the usual northern spelling) in the name  
and one station with Alleghany in the name, all three in PA.

I would guess that the stereo view is miss marked and that the station 
shown is the one on the C&O.  Maybe the C&OHS people would have a 
picture that could confirm or disprove this as a C&O station.
