The Delta Southern Railroad Company (reporting mark DSRR) is a Class III short-line railroad headquartered in Tallulah, Louisiana.

DSRR operates three disconnected lines, all of which interchange with Union Pacific:

A 30 mile segment south of Lake Village was authorized for abandonment in 2005; the majority of the line (located in Arkansas) was subsequently sold to another party for continued rail service, and the remaining portion (located in Louisiana) is in negotiations for sale.

The lines were initially owned by a predecessor of Union Pacific. The McGehee line was sold to DSRR in 1991; the Sterlington line is currently leased from UP.
