There's an interesting story at https://www.johnogroat-journal.co.uk/news/network-rail-name-mix-up-at-thurso-bridge-244382/ about bridge TSO/011 whose 'railway' name has always been wrong.

Likely down to someone's bad handwriting in the 19th century!

An interesting comment on the emergency services, except if they call the railway on the number provided, the signaller and controll staff will all have the "right" name as listed on the bridge info and know where they're calling from, and if vice versa, the railway will tell the emergency services exactly where the bridge is located.
