The Florida Northern Railroad (reporting mark FNOR) is one of several short line railroads run by the Pinsly Railroad Company. It has connections to CSX at Ocala, Florida, running north to Lowell, Florida and south to Candler, Florida. It was formerly run by CSX as their Ocala Subdivision.

The railroad also operates lines connecting to CSX in Newberry, Florida running south to the Crystal River Energy Complex in Red Level, Florida, just north of Crystal River, Florida. Long coal trains are still pulled by CSX locomotives on this branch while local traffic still uses the Pinsly Red with Yellow locomotives. The spur to High Springs was removed in 2015.
