The Louisville and Nashville Railroad was one of the major freight and passenger railroads in the southeast U.S. until 1972, and is now part of CSX. Lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=L&N in addition to railway=rail (if still in use) or railway=abandoned.

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/ICC valuations/Louisville and Nashville Railroad for a chronology (which may have some errors) of lines constructed by the L&N and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1917.

Below is a list (presently rather incomplete) of ex-L&N lines, with mapping status.
