While I'll take West Bridge Junction as an answer, the "station" sign on the former SP Sunset Route says "Westwego" (West Bridge Jct is in Westwego LA!)

Since I got no response to the last question...

By merger this railroad ended up with an "Eastern Route" and "Western Route" between its two major cities. For part of the distance the "Eastern Route" ran to the west of the "Western Route".  Only one of the two routes remains today as a through route.

I am going to say that the road in question is Seaboard Coast Line.

Bit further north - the route names in question appeared in the timetable.
