Forth Rail Bridge

Interesting
Widely recognised in its day as a great feat of engineering, its familiar, now UNESCO-listed, shape is famous. Built over the period 1883-90, it was an ambitious project, coming in the wake of the great Tay Bridge disaster in 1879; indeed its construction was not completed without accidents, some fatal. Trains pass over the first portion of the bridge as if suspended in mid-air.
