The Coatbridge Branch of the North British Railway was a railway built to connect the important coal and iron industrial districts of Coatbridge and Airdrie directly to Glasgow for the North British Railway. It opened in 1871 connecting an existing network in the Monklands to a College station (later High Street) in Glasgow. This enabled mineral traffic to reach quays on the River Clyde, and passenger traffic was given a considerable boost when the Glasgow City and District Railway opened in 1886, connecting the Coatbridge line with the North Clyde network west of Glasgow.
