I have started work on another Bridge for my LEGO Railway layout, but this time I have built a Dual Track (Line), Double-Leaf Bascule Railway Bridge. This does mean I will need to build yet another baseboard to house it on, but I have received a large heap of LEGO Train Track, so all should be fine.

A Bascule Bridge (commonly referred to as a drawbridge) is a movable bridge with a counterweight that continuously balances a span, or “leaf”, throughout its upward swing to provide clearance for boat traffic. It may be single or double leafed.

For the forth coming [brixhibition] Exhibition at the end of April, I have been asked to set-up and run a couple of interactive Robot Soccer fields.The Robots needed to be robust and reliable as members of the public will be interacting with them.

I have used Sony Playstation PS-2 Controllers, but they have far too many controls that would be unused and confusing to the first time operator. I chose to use a Nintendo Wii® Nun-Chuck Controller for the job.
