The Southern Railway was one of the major freight and passenger railroads in the southeast U.S. until 1982, and is now part of Norfolk Southern. Lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=Southern 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 Southern and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1918.

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