The CN&L Subdivision is a railroad line owned and operated by CSX Transportation in the U.S. state of South Carolina. The line runs from Columbia northwest to north of Laurens[1] along the former Columbia, Newberry and Laurens Railroad.

At its southeast end, the CN&L connects to the Hamlet Subdivision, Eastover Subdivision, and Columbia Subdivision. It has a gap near Clinton, where it uses the Monroe Subdivision, and ends at the Spartanburg Subdivision north of Laurens. The CN&L connection track north of Laurens opened in late July 1996, allowing CSX to easily route Florida-bound trains around downtown Laurens and onto the CN&L.[2][3]
