Does anyone have an idea where this photo was shot?

There aren't many landmarks to give away the specific location, but based on the double track and gentle rolling hills, my guess is somewhere between Oakland, MD and Terra Alta, WV... maybe Hopemont, WV.

The shot is actually kind of on the way to the Potomac Eagle from PGH, which is actually a huge shocker. Generally speaking, the Mountain Sub is not on the way to anything!

Looks like somewhere along the glades to me as well.

You should run into an Eastbound drag today departing Grafton about 830, and possibly 317 in the afternoon.

Good luck, and see you Saturday.

The location is known as Wilson. It is shot from what appeared to be an abandoned farm south of the right of way halfway between Swanton and Altamont. I was there several years ago and the field was starting to grow up with weeds and small saplings.
