The Rogue Valley Terminal Railroad (reporting mark RVT) is a 14-mile (23 km) shortline railroad that connects White City, Oregon, United States to a junction north of Medford with the Central Oregon and Pacific Railroad, which hauls its cars to the Union Pacific Railroad at Eugene, Oregon or Black Butte, California via the Siskiyou Summit, or to the Yreka Western Railroad at Montague, California.

The line began operations on November 3, 1954 on an abandoned Southern Pacific Transportation Company right-of-way as the White City Terminal & Utilities Co., and was renamed after the Union Tank Car Company bought it in 1974. Berkshire Hathaway gained indirect control of the railroad with the 2008 purchase of Marmon Transportation Services LLC (the parent company of Union Tank Car Company).

On December 17, 2012, Marmon Transportation Services announced the sale of WCTU Railway LLC to RVTR Rail Holdings, a holding company owned by Scott DeVries of Superior, Wisconsin.

On March 15, 2013 the railroad was renamed Rogue Valley Terminal Railroad Corporation and the holding company owner was renamed the CCT Rail System Corporation RVT leases two diesel-electric switcher locomotives from Western Rail, Inc. of Airway Heights, Washington. WRIX SW1200 #82 (formerly RF&P 82) is used in daily weekday freight switching operations. WRIX SW1 #1001 is currently stored out-of-service as a backup for the #82.
