Painter's note: The paint scheme reflects the blending of a Canadian railway with an American railway and is represented by the blending of red (Canadian colour) with blue (American colour). The white stripe along the running board is symbolic of the tie between Canada and the U.S. which links the two countries together; Canada and the U.S. both use the colour white in their flags, and is, therefore, a common feature between the two countries, as is the railway. The flags display the two countries covered by this new rail system.
