  3. Yes. It is rather beautiful isn’t it? I’m not even sure why. It just is.

    I think for me it’s the sheer size of it. When a train goes through it the bridge dwarfs it.

    Fab photos @75swampy :)

    I’ve never seen that bridge in real life.

    I also like the Millau bridge in France, tho bit unnerving on a windy day!

  14. Here you go, must have been about 1990/1 shortly before the first Gulf War. As the Navigating Officer I would have been directing the ship through.
