    Canadian Pacific train in British Columbia</td> </tr> </tbody></table> An important [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot]acquisition[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] announced this month by Canadian Pacific positions the railroad to be North America's first continental NAFTA super-railway, connecting Canada with Mexico through the heart of the U.S., roughly parallel to Interstate 35. On Sept. 4, when Canadian Pacific, or CP, announced an agreement to acquire the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad, or DM&E, railroad analysts saw the move as a strategic attempt by CP to move into Wyoming's coal rich Power River Basin. In that area, the Burlington Northern [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot]Santa [/FONT][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot]Fe[/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR], BNSF, and Union Pacific, UP, previously enjoyed exclusive access.
    Included in the deal was the Iowa, Chicago, and Eastern Railroad, or IC&E, a sister railroad also owned by Cedar American Rail Holdings, Inc., the [COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot][COLOR=blue ! important][FONT=&quot]parent[/FONT][/FONT][/COLOR][/COLOR] holding company of both the DM&E and the IC&E.
    Largely overlooked in the deal, IC&E – independently operated from the DM&E – reaches down into Kansas City, where the DM&E shares the KnocheYard with Kansas City Southern, or KCS.
    The acquisition expanded CP's 14,000-mile rail network by approximately 2,500 miles, including, through IC&E, access into the U.S. Midwest, adding to the CP markets American markets for agricultural products, ethanol and coal.
