Here are a few shots of the Tay rail bridge which I took during a short break to my home city. The bridge is of course famous for the disaster that befell it on the 28 Dec 1879 when, during a violent storm the bridge partially collapsed, plunging a train and its passengers into the icy cold River Tay below. It is understood that 75 people perished on that fateful night, although only 46 bodies were ever recovered.

Superb series of photos, John. I’ve visited Dundee twice; a Royal Navy visit in the 1980s when serving on HMS Fife and then in 2010 with a camera! A great place.
Many thanks, I left Dundee in the mid 80’s to join the Air Force and the city was in dire need of a facelift. Fortunately, much has changed and Dundee is now quite an attractive city. The waterfront is currently being redeveloped and should be stunning when completed in the next 5 or so years. Thanks again
