I built this motorised reailroad bridge for the competition. Because of its shape once lifted it creates enough room for ships to go under. Also the mni 4 studs wide train driving on top is motorised.

I still say the train is a great idea :classic:

And your presentation keeps getting better. Putting the remote inside the boat is an inspired idea. Loved that :thumbup:

@ Zblj:  I like your bridge -- Rotating Arches are very efficient!  We're you inspired by the Millenium Bridge (pictured below)?  I'm wondering whether you used any of the 88492c01 "Flexible Train Track" segments to achieve the curve:

Yes the bridge is sinpired by the Mllenium one, but i decided to use only one arch. The tracks like Mahjqa said are upside down and have enough air to be curved like that.
