Forth Rail Bridge

This is Edinburgh's Golden Gate or Harbour Bridge! This is the rail bridge across the Firth of Forth which links North and South Queensferry, and more importantly, links Edinburgh to the north-east of Scotland. It is a wonderful feat of Victorian engineering and with it constantly being repainted to avoid corrision, it has stood the test of time better than its 1960s road bridge neighbour. I used to think that the trains went up and down the top of it...I was most disappointed when I first saw a train going through it!
From tomorrow we're going to go north of the bridge and see some other sights of Scotland.
