The Dallas, Garland and Northeastern Railroad (reporting mark DGNO) is a railroad headquartered in Richardson, Texas.

DGNO operates over rail lines totaling approximately 233 miles (375 km),[1] including industrial leads. The line extends from Trenton, Texas to Garland, Texas, then from Garland to Dallas via trackage rights over Kansas City Southern Railway and Union Pacific. DGNO also operates from Sherman to McKinney, from Carrollton to Murphy and from Dallas to Lake Dallas. Of the total trackage, approximately 51 miles are leased from Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and DGNO leases 129 miles from Union Pacific.

The company is a subsidiary of RailAmerica, having been purchased in 2000.[1]

Most of the railroad's traffic comes from stone products, scrap metal and wood products. The DGNO hauled around 60,000 carloads in 2008.[1]
