- Technical notes about the real bridge located in Scotland:

In the late 1800s, a railway bridge across Scotland's Firth of Tay swayed and collapsed in the wind. Seventy-five passengers and crew on a passing night train died in the crash. It was the worst bridge disaster in history. So when engineers proposed bridging the even wider Firth of Forth, the Scottish public demanded a structure that looked like it could never fall down. They got it. Chief engineers Sir John Fowler and Benjamin Baker came up with the perfect structural solution: a cantilever bridge.
