Went over it a few times myself on the way to Perth,rained both times, got a few pictures from the train as we went over the bridge but they came out a bit blurred due to dirty windows and heavy rain, I'll pick the best out and see if they are worth posting

Went over the bridge to Kirkaldy when I stayed at Dalkeith a few years ago. Pretty depressing, especially when it's raining !
