The Chemin de fer de la Rivière Romaine (reporting mark CFRR) (in English, the Romaine River Railway) is a Canadian short line industrial railway operating in eastern Quebec.

The railway measures approximately 41 mi (66 km) running from the port of Havre-Saint-Pierre on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River inland to a massive ilmenite (titanium iron) deposit at Lac-Allard. At Havre-Saint-Pierre, the mineral is loaded aboard bulk carriers and shipped upriver to the port of Sorel-Tracy.

The Romaine River Railway began operating in 1949 and is owned and operated by QIT-Fer et Titane, which is a subdivision of the Anglo-Australian company Rio Tinto.[1]
