The link for this was posted on another forum and I thought it might be of interest to members here.

Look out for the moving swan.

Great Video Ed nice to see layouts with a geographical difference. Yes the swan is very good a nice detail but i was more impressed by the flawless slow motion of the barge i thought the swan must be on a magnet or something but that barge must have something quite slick to do that.

No idea how it's done Brian, but it's very clever.

It's a very atmospheric layout and if it wasn't for the lack of ripples you would think it's real water.

Now here is my guess

I think that river is a sheet of float glass and what you see as the bottom is a painted  board stuck to the glass.
Under the boat i think there must be a number of ball bearing rollers which have been carefully set to the correct height to give the absolute minimum clearance between boat and glass it must be magnetically attached to some sort of track below the baseboard which has a slow movement motor attached which follows the track.
Thats my guess what other ideas are there?
