Tour Scotland Winter Video Passenger Train Forth Bridge North Queensferry Fife
Tour Scotland Winter video of a diesel passenger train on the Forth Railway Bridge on visit to North Queensferry on ancestry visit to Fife, Scotland. Although the railway station here was not in service by the time of the opening of the Forth Bridge in March 1890, it was in use soon after. The station replaced the station at North Queensferry Pier, which had been opened in 1874 to take passengers to and from the ferry across the Forth. Monday to Saturday daytimes four trains per hour go to Haymarket and onwards to Edinburgh Waverley south bound. Four trains per hour head towards north bound Inverkeithing and the Fife Circle. Of these, two run the full length of the circular route to Glenrothes with Thornton, one clockwise, via Dunfermline, the other, anti-clockwise, via Kirkcaldy, one runs to Glenrothes via the coast and then terminates there and the other runs via Dunfermline to terminate at Cowdenbeath. Evenings and Sundays two trains per hour go to Edinburgh Waverley and two along the Fife Circle, one via Dunfermline and the other via Kirkcaldy.
