Remarks & Notes 
Light trace of a northbund train on the 2467 meter long doubletrack Forth bridge over the Firth of Forth at Queensferry near Edinburgh. When built from 1882 to 1890, it was the world's longest cantilever bridge, with a main span of 521 meter. The three towers are 110 meter high. The world's first major steel structure, the Forth Bridge represents a key milestone in the history of modern railway civil engineering and still holds the record as the world’s longest cantilever bridge. 53,000 tonnes of steel and 6.5 million rivets were used to construct the Forth Bridge. In July 2015, UNESCO inscribed the Forth Bridge as the sixth World Heritage site in Scotland.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
