Proper old riveted steel bridges just seem to last years.  Even when they rot through rarely do they ever collapse, over engineered.

Bit hairy if the wind picks up

Banardos in conjunction with Network rail have a limited 2 weekend event to see from top of Fife Cantilever as bridge is being worked on during week but hoist is available at weekend.

 

Went up old road bridge 2 years ago and felt like you were on a ship and needing to splay your feet for stability.

 

Rail bridge feels rock solid underfoot, even when trains were passung beneath.

Heights never bother me but due to my legs every one gets scared for me. 

I hate rides tho  

Im similar; heights don’t bother me but I don’t like free standing ladders, which isn’t too convenient given what I do for a living. 😳

😂Said with feeling! As Walker 570 says, it’s not the fall, it’s that sudden stop when you’ve finished falling, that does the damage. 

Its the temptation to step off the edge which frightens me. 😳

Saw a fresh delivery of people up at the platform this morning whilst  leaving North Queensferry heading south.

The falling is totally harmless, it's when you stop that hurts:/
