Chattahoochee Industrial Railroad is a class III railroad located in southern Georgia.

It connects Cedar Springs, Hilton and Saffold over a 15 mile route, interconnecting with CSX Corporation and Norfolk Southern.

CIRR primarily serves Georgia-Pacific's Cedar Springs mill, a large containerboard facility. In 2002, CIRR hauled 19,561 carloads; most of them were paper pulp, and coal. It was previously a Georgia Pacific subsidiary until 2004, when Georgia Pacific sold it and other railroad properties to Genesee & Wyoming Inc.
