comment What kind of metal/alloy were on the old LEGO 9V train tracks?
Ooh, what colour are the spots? If it's steel, they should be rust-coloured.

comment How are LEGO sets designed?
There's a lot of efficiencies from new technologies – more precise, computer powered tools, less labour costs from using robotics for certain tasks – and I don’t think it was the creating of new parts themselves that brought them close to ruin, more the fact that they couldn’t sell them and burned a mountain of cash marketing failed products. Remember Galidor, Clikits?
