Toy Cars – Toy Trucks – Rockets – Boats

Transportation is all about going places or moving stuff. Here I share my thoughts about trains, rockets, cars, trucks and anything else which can be used to move people or stuff.

Air Cargo Transporter

It is Sunday today.  For me, it is a day when I make new things – usually using blocks, Lego and Meccano.  Lately I have been going to the airport often.  There I see many huge planes, but I also see these huge buildings where I was told they keep lots of cargo.
What is cargo?  It is just stuff; stuff which is coming from and going to different people and places all around the world.
So, today I decided to build an Air Cargo Transporter.  You can see that the back of the transporter looks like the fuselage of a plane.  You will also see that it is made of many sections.  This is because my transporter can change size, it can become longer or shorter, depending on how much cargo it needs to carry.
Do you have any ideas about how I can improve the design of my transporter?  Why not write to me below and tell me what you think.

What a Locomotive Should Look Like

I love trains.  I am sure you do too!  Often when I watch trains go by, either at the station, or from a bridge, I notice that many trains look, well – Headless!  Where is the locomotive?  Who is pulling the train?  Magic?  Well we all know there is no such thing as magic.  So who?  I asked my father that question. He pretends not to like trains; yeah right!  Who believes that?  Anyway, he said many trains now have a little electric motor or a diesel engine at the bottom of each car.  So each train car pulls itself, and there is no locomotive needed!  My first thoughts – YUK, we still use stinky and heavily polluting diesel?  Not even petrol?  And here I thought I was born in 21st century.  So much for modern high-tech stuff, that we still have trains based on 100+ years old technologies.  Never mind that; without a locomotive trains look boring and I must say Weak, Very Weak!

So, after finishing my home work, and some science (yes, I love science!), I decided to draw a high-tech locomotive.  And here its is….

My Fast Locomotive

It is aero-dynamic, and it runs on fuel-cells.  What are fuel-cells?  Click here to find out!
