Third Prize : Train Ride @Theme Park

Design Brief:

The train ride@theme park automata transforms the movement of a train in circular motion using a set of bevelled gears. By turning the handle, the vertical rotation of the gear is tranformed to horizontal rotation. The train then passes under a castle to complete the amusement ride. The windmill in the scene utilises a set of pulleys to translate the cranking to a turning motion of the vanes.
