I could be wrong, but I think CN also uses CROR signals on their GTW lines in Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.The New Westminster Sub between the Fraser River Bridge and downtown Vancouver uses BNSF American signal indications (Approach, approach medium, etc.), due to the fact that it was a BNSF line until 2006.

But another question, does anyone know, when the conductor or engineer 'calls out' a signal, lets say yellow over red, would they identify it as an "approach signal", or as a "clear to stop"?
