Found in the Leventhal Map Collection at the Boston Public Library: 


Map of VA, WVa, Ohio Showing Norfolk & Western Ry_by Matthews-Northrup Co. 


My guess is that it dates from the 1902-1908 period because:  the main line still runs up Twelve Pole Creek, and the following lines are not shown:  the Schooler Hill Old Line, the Lynchburg and Petersburg Belt Lines, the Abingdon Branch, the Big Stony RR, the New River Holston & Western RR, any portion of the VGN. 


As with any clean-up editing job, it is difficult to distinguish between what is not enough and what is too much.  Professor Miller can always turn in better restoration work than I.
