The Lehigh Valley Railroad (AAR reporting marks LV) was one of a number of railroads built in the north-eastern United States primarily to haul anthracite coal.

It was incorporated April 21, 1846 in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania as the Delaware, Lehigh, Schuylkill and Susquehanna Railroad Company. On January 7, 1853, the name was changed to Lehigh Valley Railroad. It was sometimes known as the Route of the Black Diamond, named after the anthracite it transported. At the time, anthracite was transported by boat down the Lehigh River. The railroad was meant to be a faster means of transportation.
