The Tay Railway Bridge was the longest bridge in the world - a true wonder of the time - but within 2 years it had collapsed. When the bridge came crashing down on that fateful night in December 1878 it brought down its designer Thomas Bouch as well. With the loss of the Tay Bridge, he became a recluse and died in October 1880.
