Default ? about train and photographer

Hello, I recently inherited three framed color photographs of an engine and trailing cars in different areas. Using a loupe, it looks as if the train is a Central and Western. The framing was done by Roanoke Gifts in Virginia and the photographers name appears to be Tommy L Frieburgh. I am not positive on the name-it is in cursive. The picture also has NW J-611 in the other corner of the matt. Can anyone out there help me? Does any one recognize the train or the name? I have googled Central and Western, Roanoke Gifts and the name with no leads. Thank you, Ahneck

I'm not familiar with that region, and nothing pops to mind with regards to "Central & Western." I assume you've found more than you wanted to know with regards to NW 611.

Is there any way you can attach a picture of your photos to your next post? That will help us out quite a bit.

Thank you Mr. Wolfe! It is the Norfolk & Western by Tommy Firebaugh. The prints I have were in his gallery-it sure is nice to put a name to the photo! Thank you for everyone's help!
