The Luzerne and Susquehanna Railway is a shortline railroad in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. It both serves local traffic and connects to the Reading Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad in Pittston and to the Canadian Pacific Railway (through their Delaware and Hudson Railway subsidiary) at three separate junctions. It operates a total of 55 miles of track in and around the Wyoming Valley in Luzerne County.

When formed in 1994 the railway incorporated tracks from a variety of defunct railroads, including the Pocono Northeast Railroad, Lehigh Valley Railroad, and Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad. Major commodities hauled by the Luzerne and Susquehanna include chemicals, packaging, building products, and food & beverage. The total number of cars transported in 2010 numbered nearly 4000.

The Luzerne and Susquehanna Railway is headquartered at 25 Delphine Street in Owego, New York, as part of a holding company for three shortline railroads in the Twin Tiers along with a disjunct shortline railroad in Mississippi. The line's tracks are owned by the Luzerne County Redevelopment Authority.
