Well according to the bridges own website it is the Forth Railway Bridge click here

I'm going to Scotland again in a couple of weeks to visit friends over in Fife just over the Forth Bridge - and i'm sure I won't be driving across what you suggest

It's just after the thurd one

you can't win - if you'de just called it the Forth Bridge* - it would have been brought up with the search to prove that since 1964 with the Fourth Road Bridge along side it - that it is the Forth Rail Bridge.

I don't think a road bridge is worth a model as it will need replacing well before the rail bridge.

The wires that make up the cables are slowly snapping and they don't have an answer. The Severn Road bridge is going the same way.

A Fifth Forth Bridge

Do you ever admit you are wrong? I do admire your tenacity even if irritated by it! It was the Forth Bridge but now, to distinguish it from it's neighbour, it is the Forth Railway Bridge and the analogy with films is irrelevant.... But you won't agree!!

When the railway bridge over the Firth of Forth was built it was called the Forth Bridge.

When the road bridge was built it was called the Forth Road Bridge and the original bridge became colloquially known as the Forth Railway Bridge. which has to all intents become its accepted name to the extent that the bridges own website calls it such.
