Was N&W freight station; then museum of transportation.  Severe flooding of this area in 1985 led to Virginia MOT being relocated to present location.

Subject: Train Station? Green Goat Restaurant

I'm looking for some Roanoke area history.
There is a restaurant in the old Wasena Park area of Roanoke called the Green Goat. It sits near the intersection of Winona Avenue, Wiley Drive, and 8th Street ... just off what I assume is the Roanoke Belt Line. 
In a Google Maps view the architecture looks strikingly railroad station like. 
I see (through several Google search results), it is referred to as the Wasena Station and formerly housed the Va Museum of Transportation. I couldn't find much else.
Does anyone know if this was either a N&W or VGN station. Was it always located there? Any history (pre VMT), one could provided, would be appreciated.
