Background information about Tay Rail Bridge

This image of a steam train on Tay Rail Bridge was taken on the 12th April 2009. During the summer months steam trains run between Edinburgh and Aberdeen however they do not cross the Tay Rail Bridge probably due to the weight of the steam locomotive.

The current Tay Rail Bridge is the second one to cross the River Tay linking Dundee to Fife. The first single track bridge opened in 1878 its lightweight lattice design failed during a storm on the 28th December 1879 as a train crossed the high girders with the lost of 75 lives.

The replacement bridge was built of iron and steel parallel to the remains of the original. It has two tracks and a more robust design it opened in 1887.
