    I have:
    Genesee & Wyoming bought up 30+ shortlines from RailAmerica.
    G &W bought 1,000 miles of track from CP to form the Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern.
    Montreal Maine & Atlantic changed hands to become the Central Maine & Quebec.

    There are hundreds of shortlines in North America with constant activity
