Mr. Guitar, that is very cool.  Thanks for putting it up.  More info on the Fallkirk Wheel is on their web site at
http://www.thefalkirkwheel.co.uk/index.asp

It is a boat lift used to connect two canals that are 35 meters apart vertically.  Until 1933 they were connected y a series of 11 locks spanning 1.5 km.  Makes me think of the large system of locks at the Three Gorges dam.
