"Forth Bridge" Forth Bridge Tip by MalenaN
Forth Bridge, Edinburgh: 3 reviews and 5 photos
When I was a kid we had playing cards with pictures of famous buildings and constructions. Four were of bridges and one of them was the Forth Bridge. It was nice now to see it in reality and go over it with train.
The Forth Bridge is a rail bridge built in 1883 – 1890 and is considered to be an engineering marvel. More than 4500 men were working with the construction during these seven years. The bridge is 1447 metres long and over 100 metres high (the train runs almost 50 metres above the water) and about 60 000 ton of steel were used in the construction.
The train station south of the bridge is Dalmeny (for South Queensferry) and the train station north of the bridge is North Queensferry.
