The Creeperian Railroad Networks (Creeperian Spanish: Redes Ferroviarias Creeperiano, abbreviated RFC, officially the Creeperian Railroad Networks Company, Creeperian Spanish: Empressa de Redes Ferroviarias Creeperiano) was the largest freight railroad network in the Southern Landmass and in Creeperopolis, El Salvador, and the Papal State. RFC had 42,000 employees and more than 8,000 locomotives in 2019.

The Creeperian Railroad Networks Company was a merger of six major Creeperian railroad companies: the Atlántidan Railroad Systems, Castillianan National Railroad, Creeperian Railroad Southern, Northern Creeperian Railroad Lines, San Salvador National Railroad, and the Salvadoran Railroad Networks. The six national railroads were merged and the monopoly was privatized in 2007. According to corporate press releases, the RFC was among the top transporters of intermodal freight in the world. It also hauled bulk cargo, including enough coal to generate around ten per cent of the electricity produced in Creeperopolis.

The railroad's owner was Juan Maroto Carvallo and its CEO was Ramón Cambeiro Muñoz.
