The Battle River Railway is a co-operative shortline freight railway created in 2010 in central Alberta. It serves the communities of Alliance, Galahad, Forestburg, Heisler, Rosalind, Kelsey, providing them with a rail connection to the Canadian National line in Camrose which connects to port facilities in Vancouver and Prince Rupert, British Columbia.

Formerly, the Battle River Producer Car Group, a collective of 180 farmers, operated as a loader of grain cars only, but in May 2009 it became the Battle River Railway New Generation Co-operative, and purchased the branch line from CN in 2010.
