Iconic 125year old Bridge has become the sixth Scottish landmark to be awarded 'Unesco' World Heritage Site status.
The decision was announced at a meeting in the German city of Bonn after the UN's cultural committee spent more than a year considering its nomination.
World heritage status is given to sites of "outstanding universal value" with the aim of protecting them for future generations.

From Paul Gentleman:- "Following recommendation by the Railway Heritage Designation Advisory
Board, the Board of Trustees’ of the Science Museum have designated the
locomotive 91 111, its nameplates and the vinyl wrap. As far as we can
see, this is the first time a livery has been designated and ensures its
presence on the rail network for many years to come. Once its working
life comes to an end, it will then become part of the National
Collection and hopefully displayed at the National Rail Museum, York" (22nd Mar '15)
