The Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway was a railway built to link Glasgow and Edinburgh. The Act of Parliament for building the railway received its Royal Assent in 1838 which was open on 28 July 1863. Services started between Glasgow Queen Street and Haymarket on 21 February 1842. The line was extended to Edinburgh General in 1846.[1] John Miller surveyed the route. Its main railway Works was opened at Cowlairs in 1842.

The line was absorbed into the North British Railway on 1 August 1865.

The line is still open as the Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk Line.
