Publisher's Summary

On December 28th, 1879, the night of the Great Storm, the Tay Bridge collapsed, along with the train that was crossing and everyone on board....

This is the true story of that disastrous night, told from multiple viewpoints:

The station master waiting for the train to arrive - who sees the approaching lights simply vanish.

The bored young boys watching from their bedroom window who witness the disaster.

The dreamer who designed the bridge which eventually destroyed him.

The old highlanders who professed the bridge doomed from the outset.

The young woman on the ill-fated train, carrying a love letter from the man she hoped to marry.... 

The High Girders is a vivid, dramatic reconstruction of the ill-omened man-made catastrophe of the Tay Bridge disaster - and its grim aftermath.
