I did a little research last night and found that locomotive to be the AT&SF 5017 which is a Baldwin-built.  The Santa Fe had 37 examples of this class, with the 5017 being on display at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay sans it's jacketing.

Ahh the good ol Santa Fe, one of the great railroads in America. Its a shame that engine dosent have its jacket over the back of the fire box/ boiler.

My Father says he use to get to ride once and awhile on the big beasts N&W put out in Virginia.  His grandfather was an engineer (not driver kind) for them.  He lived in Victoria.  He has a book on the rail road and man did they put out some heavy iron horse's.  Who knows what the the N&W stand for?   Bonus points if you can tell the two biggest things N&W was known for.
