I was working at Queensferry High School, South Queensferry today. This is the view from their playground: the imposing Forth Rail Bridge. This was one of the first and biggest suspension bridges made from iron. It's painted every year and, as they finish on one end, they have to start painting again back at the beginning. That's why, in Scotland, if something is a task that never seems to end "it's just like painting the Forth Rail Bridge" - it never ends.

The green grass is so appealing, but the story of the rail bridge is brillant.
