Archive takes bridge back to drawing board

Historic images of the original architectural drawings of the Forth Bridge have been captured and published for the first time on a new Network Rail virtual archive.

The website archive celebrates the heritage of today’s railway infrastructure and provides public access to a special selection of the Network Rail archive, which holds more than five million records. Visitors to the site can chart the history of the railways’ most significant structures and stations including the Forth Bridge, the Tay Bridge, Box Tunnel, and many main-line stations.
