The Forth Bridge - Apparently just north of Edinburgh. This shot is incredible. The metal structure of the bridge has such an amazing and intricate presence.

The Tube, London---This is the mode of transportation we use in London. We normally park about 20 miles out and the tube takes us anywhere we want to go. Very efficient. 1983-85, 2011-14

Pullman-Y-Chapel-1960-AHB977 The Midland Pullman is seen near Chapel en le Frith, the cleanliness of the train and the high summer sun suggests that the train is a test run, (the service train would have passed this location late evening making it difficult to photograph). Circa 1960. ©www.railphotoprints.co.uk - the late Alan H. Bryant ARPS

The Royal Mail’s underground ‘mini’ railway was used to take letters (and possibly workers) along the tracks to different station/sorting offices stretching from Paddington to Whitechapel. In 2002, it had become an uneconomical service, losing an estimated 1.2M a day, and quietly shut down.
