Alloa bridge

Cine film taken by civil engineer James Watson from the leading end of a train as it slowly heads northwards over Alloa bridge. This structure crossed the Forth and included a swing span towards its northern end. This was fixed open to shipping in May 1970 when the line closed. Since then the deck sections have been removed, leaving only the piers in the river.
