River Forth railway bridges
River Forth railway bridges
It's not immediately obvious that there are 2 parallel bridges here. The nearer upstream bridge carries the line from Stirling to Dunblane and Perth, which opened in 1848. The downstream bridge carries the line to Alloa, opened in 1852, closed in 1968 and re-opened in 2008. There are plans to electrify both of these lines.
