Re: MIGHTY ATOM real robot, based upon that other little robot

Robi may be the basis for Atom, IE: use of servo motors, speech synth, etc. Atom adds a camera and display screen which Robi does not have. I have no idea about the software.

Re: The Ghost Train

Dr. Black Jack finished treating the last victim pulled from the tunnel and breathed a sigh of relief. It had been a long night, and exhaustion had started to set in.
