Here's the description I gave on my EuroBricks post:
"Did you know one of the architects of the Falkirk Wheel (Tony Gee) originally made the gearing mechanism out of LEGO?  The Falkirk Wheel is a "boat elevator" in Scotland. It was opened on May 24th, 2002 by Queen Elizabeth II. 
This is just a bunch of random facts. Let's get down to my build:
This is it. The specs:
- 2 PF Battery Boxes
- 2 PF Switches
- 4 PF M-Motors
- 2 PF IR Receivers
- 6 short turntables
- A bunch of panels (but not enough in the same color )
- A bunch of (mainly) 24t gears
- And a bunch of other parts
There are more pictures in my G+ folder here:
Thanks for taking a look at it!
