The Great Northern Railway was one of the major freight and passenger railroads in the northwest U.S. until 1970, and is now part of BNSF. Lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=GN 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 GN and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1915-18.

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