14/02/1866 – Glasgow Herald – Early yesterday morning the body of a man, shockingly mangled, was found lying between the line of rails on the Kirkintilloch section of the North British Railway, near to Croftfoot or Glenboig Brickwork. It was shortly afterwards identified as that of John Connachie, foreman at Drumcavil Brick and Tile Work, aged about 45 years, and residing at the works. It appears that the deceased had been at Airdrie during the day, and in the afternoon had been at Coatbridge, which be left shortly before it became dark and had taken the road home, the nearest way being along the railway. It is therefore supposed that he had been knocked down and run over by some of the trains, several of which must have passed after the accident, Deceased has left a widow and two children.
