Part two of the spiral corner module rebuild coming along nicely still lots of work ahead here especially in the scenery side with a road added to between the two modules.
These two modules will have later down the track two station scenes as I am modelling the (GSR) Great Southern Railway the owners of the Indian Pacific, Ghan and Overlander,
Be a lot of fun once the IP leaves Sydney I will pull up out of the way, actually be changed to different station scenes on the way to Perth, takes three days very fast clock one day.
East Pert station building yet another large building to construct, my version be slightly different but pretty close.
With this pic and the extension piece will become Sydney Central station, the next pic is are repeat pic showing what this scene be modelled on can be modelled later once the layout is up and running.
Going back to the third post I will changing the 3/4 pine sides to 100mm 12mm ply sides so I can bolt the road to under both modules, as in the pic above, it looks like another bus lane on the other side of the rad as well. Visiting Sydney again will sort that out where I be taking lots more pics spending more time there, can't wait, be the end of winter.
For got to add looking at this pics bottom left hand side is what I am modelling , extending the suburban track base out wider so I can add in the access road between the walkway and track.
Enjoy the latest pics of my layout slowly getting closer to be completed being a long road but be worth the effort.

I had a really good Saturday working in the carpenters layout department, mostly did all the cutting up of ply I cut the last 4ft half radius curve on the spiral low level and a 6ftX100mm high side for the spiral corner module.
Next I cut the first section to the cable stay double deck bridge, track deck and sides, yet to mark out the sides and cut them out ready the make can cut out the frame and after afternoon tea I screwed on the new sides to the spiral corner module.
The pic will blow every one away, I put a HO scale bus the only one I have to see how the height wise went WOW the arches will set this scene off nicely, but where the is actually where the is the be a pedestrian tunnel, go back to page 16 last post will see what I aim going to model.
I might set the two modules up tomorrow to see how they join up, forgot I also replaced the piece of ply I joined up on the lift out section on the first station with a full piece of ply.
Tony from down under days are cooling down peaked 26 degrees today.
Thanks Bob, going to look a lot better than having a straight module join there, going to take a while to finish, I will go so far and go back to it once the layout is up and running.
A new project is looming, I rang Hobbyrama earlier on not knowing a lot on ship measurements I wanted to know what the death of the ship meant he said the full height, this ship will fit the scene nicely .
The height 15.30mx 196m in length in HO scale works out 7ft 6inching long by 175mm high , the clearance height on my bridge is 12 inches going to Bunning on Wednesday to have a look at what timber they have that will fit the tower measurements 3inches at the base by 1and1/2 inches, wide.
