NOTES: According to the Association of American Railroads, a Class I railroad in 2009 is a railroad with operating revenues of at least $378.8 million. A Regional railroad is a non-Class I, line-haul, freight railroad operating 350 or more miles of road or with revenues of at least $40 million or both. A Local railroad is a railroad which is neither a Class I nor a Regional railroad, and is engaged primarily in line-haul service. A Switching and terminal railroad is a non-Class I railroad engaged primarily in switching and/or terminal services for other railroads.

Totals count railroads that operate in multiple states only once.
