Forth Rail Bridge

Here is an attractive view looking down on South Queensferry and it ferry.  The ferry service continued until the Forth Road Bridge opened in 1964.

The stonework on the towers of the Forth Rail Bridge looks very clean.  The bridge would probably be a little over ten years old when this photograph was taken.

The train has been photographed in a good position on the bridge.  The smoke and steam from the train and ferry add to the atmosphere of this picture.

The jetty is still used for pleasure sailings in "Maid of the Forth" which sails to the Island of Inchcolm with its abbey and seabirds, close to Aberdour on the north coast of the Firth of Forth
