These railroads were bought, leased, or in other ways had their track come under ownership or lease by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad.

In 1902, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad gained a majority of stock in the L&N, but it continued to operate as a separate company until its merger in 1982 into the Seaboard System Railroad.

The Georgia Railroad and the West Point Route were partly owned by the L&N.
