A domestic company possessing such a railroad, may exercise all its powers, privileges, faculties, and franchises outside this state. A foreign corporation possessing a railroad which is partly in another state and partly within this state, may exercise and enjoy all its powers, privileges, faculties, and franchises in this state, for the purposes of such railroad and its business, not inconsistent with the laws of this state. Mortgages and deeds of trust made by such corporation upon its railroad, equipment, or other property within this state, shall operate in the manner and with like effect as provided with respect to railroad companies so reorganized. Such part of the railroad as is within this state is subject to taxation and all regulations of law as are railroads of this state in like cases, and the corporation owning such railroad shall be subject to all duties imposed by law in respect to it. Such corporation may sue and be sued in all cases and in the manner that a company of this state might sue or be sued.
