Near the Riverside industrial park (middlesbrough) I spotted some gear-in-shoe Phillips MA90's. These aren't exactly commonplace.

I took this a about 3 weeks ago whilst up there. The bridge is almost 100 years old (since building of it started) and it still works. The recent installation of the floodlights really does wonders for the appearance of the bridge at night. Although its rare for ships to pass under the bridge nowadays, as soon as i got on the bridge here two ships passed under and nearly caused me to miss the train home!

I'll probably enter this for a POTM as it has a bridge in the pic, as well as a primary A road, gantry, lighting, and a train!

Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge (night) - Feb 2008

Part of the A178 in Teeside, the Transporter bridge is nearly 100 years old and still in daily use (unless the winds are so strong it threatens to make the cradle act like a pendulum!)... a cyclist or pedestrian can cross it for only 50p, so it's worth the crossing. The bridge is regularly used for public stunts, and open days are also available. A brilliant sight and my favorite structure up north.
