The Canadian National railway (CN) is a current operating railway company in the central United States and southern Canada. The route starts down south in New Orleans and goes north following the Mississippi river to the Great Lakes. The rails go west to Vancouver, B.C. from here, and they also go east to to Halifax N.S. The farthest north the rails go is to the southern shore of the Great Slave Lake. Canadian National was a government owned company up until 1995, and after that it was made a private company. The Canadian Pacific Railway (CP Rail), its competitor, covers much of the territory.

Dates of operation: 1918-present
