The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad was one of the major freight and passenger railroads in the midwest U.S. until 1970, and is now part of BNSF. Lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=CB&Q in addition to railway=rail (if still in use) or railway=abandoned.

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/ICC valuations for a chronology (which may have some errors) of lines constructed by the CB&Q and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1915-18. Also see a 1909 listing of lines.

Below is a list (roughly complete) of ex-CB&Q lines, with mapping status.
