The Transporter Bridge was misnamed due to a verbal communication error at Ordnance Survey.

Its original name was Trainspotter Bridge, since it was the vantage point occupied by local dignitaries who used to while away Saturday mornings watching the progress of Stevenson's Rocket, pulling a train of day-tripping flange refiners from Stockton to the pleasure palaces of Redcar.
