It is marvellous what a bit of Lego can do.
Mechanism installed and working.

Excellent - takes me back to my time teaching ( or trying to, before you say it) technology in secondary schools.

Ingenious Dave. This should be a fantastic diorama. I wonder where it's going to live?

I am having problems with my incline, its a bit steep and the truck are not happy with the slope and curve, back to the drawing board and try to ease the curves.
