The Erie Lackawanna discontinued service in '76.  Would that be the road?

Is it the Big Four/NYC just northwest of Colfax?  Crossing the Little Potato Creek?

Is this the NYC (ex Big Four) over Montgomery Creek in Knightstown?

Is it somewhere along the old NKP line south out of New Castle?

A question about the clue: "A diamond is behind me, this line also had a rather well known accident about 40 miles further east."

A diamond is behind me...  as in the diamond is currently there or was there in 1976?  Also, when you say behind me, you mean behind the photographer, right?  Not behind the bridge that we are looking at...

Diamond was gone when this line came out...so it's gone.
Behind me, photographer yes.

I'll give another hint. 
My right of way in another spot got another use.

Final hint....

Parts of me were included in the FSP of Conrail.  This segment location was not.

Just to my east I received another use for another company just not rail. 

My location had a name change years ago...today I'm rather busy but not like I was.

NYC in Losantville (formerly Hunts Cross Roads) where the Losantville Casket Company once operated.   My guess is that you are standing in the parking lot of the Phillips 66 taking a picture toward the southwest of a bridge over a dry wash.   The C&O diamond in Losantville would have been behind you.

Got it.  Branson was the official name but I think it had 2 before.
