Frankly worrying...

Hey there train fans,

Here's a top vid' of yours truly on The Forth Rail Bridge a week or two back. The bridge is massively massive and ginormous so a vid' of the whole thing would be huge, but here's a taster.
This is a large rail bridge over the Firth of Forth in Edinburgh. It is a cantilever bridge opened in 1890 and still taking 200 trains per day.

More train drama today as I am off to Cumbria later.

No scary facts about the weight of the water when it rains? You are disappointing your readers BS5!

Hey there Suburbia!

I was going to include the number of rivets and the total weight of the paint but that might have showed my secret Spod side.

You mean that's a secret?

..and no mention of the bridge being the source of Iron Bru! kids love it...being part scots I guess they would.

Classy stuff, bro.

Dandelion, who will be visiting in September, will no doubt be asking you for a guided tour of good bits of pavement, bridge and other assorted infrastructure, as she is most interested in that sort of thing.

The Firth of Forth. Hah! Say that ten times fast.
