The Seaboard Air 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=SAL in addition to railway=rail (if still in use) or railway=abandoned.

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/ICC valuations/Seaboard Air Line Railway for a chronology (which may have some errors) of lines constructed by the SAL and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1918.

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

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