     After going back and reading what you wrote again, meaning that I 
am guessing that it wasn't specifically stated that this photo was taken 
on a "wye", I think that it is actually taken behind the station at 
Glasgow. The track bearing off to the left goes down to the C&O at 
Balcony Fall, the track that the engine is on goes back to the small 
yard, tracks 1 & 2, used for transfer between the C&O and the N&W, among 
other things.
You can see cars in the background, and that tree visible behind the 
fence was right there when I was working. The terrain as it falls off in 
the lower left matches up as well.
