My first wild guess is Virginian at Stewartsville, VA. The road name doesn't ring a bell.

The cut is angled up at the sides, not a deep rock cut, and looks fairly new as there is not much shrubbery/grasses regrowth on the angled sides. My guess of age is somewhere around 1910-ish or thereabouts and no, I don't have a scanner.
On the reverse is stated "Papa, on the Bridge Va. Railroad at Burnett's Crossing."

That's it.
There is no train, locomotive or any background that is identifiable, other than the trestle road bridge across the cut. My guess is the bridge is maybe 100' across.
Could be anywhere - N&W, VGN, C&O, SR ......... who knows?

Any help from this rather sparse info appreciated.
