On 28 December, 1879, the 13 raised spans at the centre of the Tay Bridge, the high girders, fell, taking with them 160 yards of the bridge, and a railway train with 75 men, women and children on board. This tragically ended the dream of Thomas Bouch, recently knighted for his work on the bridge, and to some extent the unparalleled reputation of British engineering in works of this kind.
