British Railways' Standard Class 5 steam locomotive crossing the Forth Bridge with a local train heading for Edinburgh, c 1958. Photograph by Bishop Eric Treacy. Treacy (1907-1978) was often allowed special access to many areas denied to other railway photographers. He also befriended many of the footplate crews, occasionally persuading them to create special smoke effects for the camera.
