The Duisburg–Quakenbrück railway is a former inter-regional German railway, built by the Rhenish Railway Company (Rh E) from Duisburg in the western Ruhr region of North Rhine-Westphalia to Quakenbrück in Lower Saxony on the border of the former Grand Duchy of Oldenburg. The railway ran from Duisburg via Oberhausen West, Bottrop Nord, Dorsten, Coesfeld, Steinfurt and Rheine to Quakenbrück where it connected with the network of the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg State Railways. The southern section to Bottrop is now used only for freight.
The competition led to the construction of the line on a relatively straight alignment.
To be competitive, the line in the Münsterland and the area between Rheine and Quakenbrück had to run as far as possible without major diversions and had to pass to the west of the ridge of the Teutoburg Forest in order to reduce transport costs and travel times.

and thus entered into direct competition with the Wanne-Eickel–Hamburg railway, built by the Cologne-Minden Railway Company in the early 1870s, from the Ruhr via Munster and Osnabruck to Bremen (part of the "Hamburg–Venlo railway").
