Tay Railway Bridge

Tay Railway Bridge, from Wormit Scotland. A very mild December afternoon in North Fife, Scotland. The Tay Railway Bridge is a railway bridge approximately two and a quarter miles in length that spans the Firth of Tay in Scotland, between the city of Dundee and the suburb of Wormit in Fife. This is the second railway bridge to have crossed the Tay from this location. During a violent storm on the evening of 28 December 1879, the original bridge collapsed, taking with it a train which was running over its single track. More than seventy-five lives were lost.
