The Port of Montreal Railway is a terminal railroad operating in Montreal, Canada.

Founded in 1907, it is owned by the governmental entity the Montreal Port Authority. However, its operations are run separately from the port as a for-profit arm. About 100 km (60 miles) of track are under the railroad's jurisdiction, and junctions are present with both CN and Canadian Pacific. An average of about 45 trains operate per week.
