The Central Manitoba Railway (reporting mark CEMR) is a Canadian shortline railway operating in the province of Manitoba.

The Central Manitoba Railway (CEMR) was created in 1999 by Cando Rail Services Ltd.[1] to purchase the former CN Pine Falls (67 miles (108 km)) and Carman subdivisions (51 miles (82 km)). They run five days a week (weekdays) in the Norcran Industrial Area in North Transcona. They purchased a former CPR yard that was built in 1887-9 and built a new shop-house and diesel repair facility. They also repair cars for other railways.

They run on 115 & 132 pound per yard (50 kg/m) rail on the Carman sub, and 85 pound per yard (42 kg/m) light rail on the Pine Falls sub, one of the few light rail branches existing in Manitoba.

CEMR 4002 after being repainted in December 2017.

Solid black with red and white curved stripes near the rear and on the nose of the locomotive, and a red line on the fuel tank. This base scheme, and the font of the numbers, match that of the CEMR's parent company, Cando Rail Services. In the middle of the body is the CEMR "bison" logo, with the website of Cando underneath.
