AM&O RR - Question about Allegheny Station (NW Mailing List)

As I wrote earlier, both the V&T RR schedule in the June 1868 Official 
Guide and the N&W RR schedule in the June 1893 Official Guide did not 
list an Alleghany, or Allegheny, station, but both schedules did list a 
Shawsville station, so your conclusion about the naming of the 
stereoview for the resort instead of the actual station name makes sense 
to me.
