comment Looking for information on a Lego manual I had as a kid
Sadly, I'm not certain that the model in the book was by Larry Page. Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Page) says that Page designed his LEGO plotter whilst at University. The Idea Book was published in 1980 when Page would have been about 7 years old. I don't doubt that a prodigious 7-year-old might come up with a clever LEGO design, but I'm not sure that he would be at University by that age.

You're welcome. I absolutely loved this book, and was always fascinated by the plotter. I don't think that it is any coincidence that I enjoy a career as a programmer, and would site this model as one of the inspirations behind my vocation. I'm delighted to be reminded of it all.

comment Can I build a faster LEGO train motor?
10mph is nearly 4.5 metres / second. You're going to need a lot of track...
