The 8.30 to Edinburgh Waverley pulls out of Inverkeithing...

The trains back to Fife tonight could be interesting.

In one of m previous jobs a lot of my colleagues commuted over from Fife. They generally either came in very early, to get to the office by 7-7:30 or later to arrive by 10 and work later. Driving over the bridge in rush hour is a nightmare.

I usually leave the house about 8.30-9.00 to get in for 9.30-10.00.

Now it's the 9.25 train getting into office for 10.30. Today I opted to 'work from home.'

What part of the bridge is causing concern?

Evidently bolts have sheered off. The engineers were on site yesterday and apparently they looked worried.

Fife should seize the opportunity to claim independence and close the borders. Glory to Eternal Emperor Leishman.

Transport minister has just announced that the bridge will be closed until at least New Year. Ouch!

Fucking hell. That's a disaster.

All you fifers are fucked. Anyone with a spare car ferry lying about could make a killing here.

We've a few sailors on here - we could chip in and launch a P&B hovercraft service, make a killing and retire to our solid gold castles. The BHT 130 looks a belter and carries 130 people. http://www.griffonhoverwork.com/products-services/used-hovercraft.aspx

If you heading from the Highlands or Grampians and have tickets for the Edinburgh Hogmanay Party time to set off for the party about three days ago.

Can they not just use the other 3?

And it is the first time on here that The_Kincardine will be deemed popular.

I live just around the corner from my work in Edinburgh. Tremendous excuse not to have to visit the relatives in Fife at Christmas.
