After the visit to the South side we hopped over to North Queensferry for the trip to the top but not by road, but by boat. The guys from Calypso Marine took us around and even under the structure, by this point the camera was going overtime.
Track level from the North side
Going to the top is quite easy as it happened, there's a lift that goes all the way to the top! Well, it's more an open cage hoist but it makes getting to the top fairly easy, as long as you have a hoist operator I suppose! Before going right up we stopped at track level on the North side for a quick look, sadly no passing train this time but what a spot this would be to catch a steam train passing over!
