The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad was one of the major freight and passenger railroads in the southeast U.S. until 1967, and is now part of CSX. Lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=ACL in addition to railway=rail (if still in use) or railway=abandoned. (Note: the Louisville and Nashville Railroad was a major enough subsidiary to have its own page and tag.)

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/ICC valuations/Atlantic Coast Line Railroad for a chronology (which may have some errors) of lines constructed by the ACL and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1917.

Most ACL lines still operated by CSX have milepost prefixes beginning with "A". This includes the so-called "A Line", the former ACL main line from Richmond to Tampa.

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