Re: CSX - Port Huron...
Neither CN nor CP have the US presence that the companies actually based here have, but CN has a pretty active presence in/around the Chicago area with their Illinois Central, Wisconsin Central, EJ&E and other acquisitions. CP also has a fairly significant presence between what's left of the Soo and the DM&E/IC&E system. If I'm not mistaken, CP also still has some presence in western New England or upstate New York.
Honestly, if nothing else, CN has a pretty significant reach south/north/west of the Chicago area, especially going north to Canada or south toward the Gulf coast. I wouldn't be surprised to see them pick up something in the Toledo area to directly connect to the B&LE or even another property in that general direction, especially if it adds to the core markets they already serve.
