Louisiana and Delta Railroad (reporting mark LDRR) is a short-line railroad headquartered in New Iberia, Louisiana.

LDRR operates over 114 miles of branch line in southern Louisiana between Lafayette, Louisiana and Raceland, Louisiana, with most of the lines near US 90. LDRR operates via trackage rights on the BNSF Railway. LDRR traffic generally consists of bauxite ore, carbon black, fertilizer, molasses, oilfield supplies, paper products, pipe, sugar and rice.

The lines were built between 1880 and 1890. LDRR started in 1987 with the sale of seven Southern Pacific lines to Genesee and Wyoming.
