Do real trains ever pull cars from another line? IE would you ever see a Union Pacific train with a few Santa Fe freight cars on it. In my rail line I have a large mix of items. Most are Union Pacific, Central Pacific, Pennsylvania or Santa Fe.

In a Nut shell Yes.

I see CN cars on the NS line in Charlotte all the time. This is not at all uncommon

Interchange traffic makes up about 60% of your average train. In your case, Pennsy and other eastern roads would make up a very small percentage in a western railroad like the UP, in keeping with the distance.
