John, not a violation.

The AAR districts that border CANADA include Minnesota and Pennsylvania.

Therefore any CN or CP freight car could be routed through the United States between
those two states (or to New England, or to Montana or Washington state etc etc) because
those districts are ADJACENT to the territorial districts of CN and CP. The rules were
flexible enough that freight cars could leave home rails for years at a time - and many

P.S. The rules are even MORE flexible today! Next load, ANY road is how it works now.
