The Rutherglen and Coatbridge Railway was a railway line in Scotland built by the Caledonian Railway to shorten the route from the Coatbridge area to Glasgow. It opened in 1865. It was later extended to Airdrie in 1886, competing with the rival North British Railway. Soon after a further extension was built from Airdrie to Calderbank and Newhouse. The line closed to passengers in 1964, but the core section from Rutherglen to Coatbridge remained open for goods traffic. It was reopened in 1993 as the Whifflet Line for local passenger trains and later electrified, and is in use at the present day.
