The California, Arizona and Santa Fe Railway was a non-operating subsidiary (paper railroad) of Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway that was incorporated in 1911 and was merged into the ATSF in 1963. It owned the ATSF line from Phoenix - Ash Fork and Phoenix - Mojave.

It leased/purchased the tracks built by the Southern Pacific Railroad between Needles and Mojave, CA. California, Arizona and Santa Fe would ultimately be absorbed by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway.
