Wow, I'm very very impressed. And good for Network Rail to make these archives available on the internet where they will inspire future generations of young men and women to pursue engineering, management, and the trades!
We focus so much on "celebrities", but the people who actually change our world, who change our way of life, generally pass by nameless and faceless.

Iwas going to see a friend in Cowdenbeath,and asI worked for B.R at the time,the Driver gave me permission to ride in the front cabwith him in the DMU.I will never forget the experience of going over the River Forth,and wish I could have had the chance again.I had only seen it from S. Queensferry,or the water,but to me that was an awesome experience.

I was born and raised in Kirkcaldy and as a young boy I used to be in awe at the size and magnificence of the beauty of the Forth Bridge which made me feel very proud of my heritage and to cross over in the train was always a thrill and joy for me. We always tossed a penny out of the train window for good luck as well.

Really excited about the proposed visitor centre(s). This bridge is world famous and visits would be a highlight of a Scottish holiday or a local day out. I look forward to developments and commend your enterprise.
I walked the bridge twice when a student in the 1970s (legally!), but it was backs to the railings when the lookouts whistled and then a DMU passed at 40 mph with about 2 feet to spare (or so it seemed). Females were not allowed in those days!

In the1940s I lived in Edinburgh,I was evacuated to my Grandmother who lived in Callendar,I just loved going over the bridge,on the train,throwing money out the window for luck,those were the days!
