Línia Llobregat-Anoia or Metro del Baix Llobregat is the collective name under which several 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) (metre gauge) rail lines operated by the Catalan rail company Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) are known. They serve several areas of Baix Llobregat, Anoia, Bages, Barcelonès in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, and their common terminus is the railway station in Plaça d'Espanya, Barcelona. Its main depot is in Martorell, with train sidings between Sant Boi station and Molí Nou-Ciutat Cooperativa station on the connecting Barcelona Metro line 8.

Traditionally that line is called el carrilet (in Catalan) which means "little" or "narrow" rail. This line also carries freight trains which serve the unelectrified branch line to the Port of Barcelona accessed behind Sant Boi station, as well as a branch to a potash mine at Súria accessed after Manresa-Viladordis station and a SEAT automobile factory accessed before Sant Esteve Sesrovires station.
