I am following the same theme - here is another bridge!


The Forth Railway Bridge?

yup, that is correct - a land mark bridge from 1890, nominated as a world heritage site. The bridge sits over the Firth of Forth outside Edinburgh.

That's it alright. You're up next.

Good catch! How did you find that? I thought I had made it difficult... :blink:

heh heh, honestly, I guessed it was a bridge in London. When I realized the water was way too...water-colored... for the Thames, I went to Paris and aligned the orientation of the Seine.

In other words, lucky guess. :)

Ok here goes...also, keeping with the bridge theme.

You cannot drive across this one. I have also walked across this one. Its a very nice centerpiece for two adjoining communities

Well, I've wasted part of the day trying to figure this out. Where would I find a narrow nonnavigable river in a valley steep enough for the railroad tracks to run alongside, with frequent passenger train service (there are shelters and a platform on the westernmost track), in a place cold enough to have an ice rink? Finally, some Google-fu led me to the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge over the Wabash River in Lafayette/West Lafayette, Indiana.

Ok, I'll continue with another bridge... I think it is very cool how there are tunnels at both ends of this bridge.
