Yes, both Canadian Pacific and Canadian National have purchased some US railroads and you see them quite a lot. Unfortunately some of the railroads they absorbed were some of my favorites like the Wisconsin Central and the Soo Line. Oh well, at least I got some pictures of them while I could and some are still around although a lot harder to find.

I'm very ignorant about Americas railways, I really must try and visit!

Yeah, I'm the same way when it comes to railroads in other parts of the world! When you hop the pond and visit the US you won't be disappointed. With all the variations in terrain and railroads, you will have a lot to choose from! That will be the hard part!

Yes! It also gives a whole different effect - all that white, it brings out the locomotive's colors better! [...Unless the locos are white :'D]

This is very true! It may be a pain to shoot in, but the rewards make it worth while!
