This is the other pic showing the path way in under the first floor of Sydney Central at the end is escalators, ground level to the first floor  is quite high about 4 inches in HO scale, escalators are quite steep
I will have to shift the black ply in three to four  inches
More pics tomorrow.

Another angle pic of the access walk way between the mainline track and building, in the next pic will show what walk way be modelled on when finished.
You can see the top lift out piece of ply that covers the walk way easy to lift out y unscrewing the screws.

Here is a pic of the escalators, this one isn't too bad not so steep, but the next pic you will see, no way I was  going to tackle walking down those steps, was bad enough going down the escalators.

A friend was telling me a few people have come to grief   on these stairs, be a challenge to model the steps and escalators too. I took quite a few pics that afternoon a bugger my digital SLR camera's battery was dead, used my iPhone 6s to take the pics I thing the SLR camera is on the way out with the mobile phone improving in every new model.

Tony from down under, enjoy

Here is the final pic of this series of Camdale layout statin module complex showing how I am bolting the first station module to the front spiral approach corner module, the wing nuts make it easy.
On the other side of the corner module will be a road with the bus terminal go back to the88th post you will see the buses, more money buying HO scale buses never ends, of course with East Perth scene the road wont be there.
No work on the layout this week, form tomorrow on it is going to be dam hot, was planning Thursday that is out 38 degrees Friday the same and Saturday will hit 40 degrees + I be at my train club, Sunday out fingers crossed Monday is cooler  big day be setting up all the front modules, including the car port.
There will be another six inch ply strip with three tracks in front of the three  modules, finishing the first set of station modules stage one.

It looks like I will have to go back to the draw bar between the two powered tenders of my famous Flying Scot, I think it is the stiff wires powering the second tender the kadee's kept on uncoupling.
I made a mistake and bough 8 of those cheap coachers from your model railway layout magazine, only coast me $8 a coach can't really complain, I will body mount the kadees.they keep on derailing mainly on points the wheels are plastic not a bad coach need a bit of TLC, any hints there.
Here is a pic of my Flying Scot 4472 , both motors are matching motors once I put the draw bar back on will solder the wires where the heat shrink is not soldered yet.

Here is a pic of Hornby Flying Scot duel tender powered with the water tender covering the second motor.

Took some time to get the two tenders to work with some help, I am looking at building my own Garratt loco too expensive to buy  RTR a matter of buying for a good price two cheap 4-8-4 steamies

I made the most of it today as I said I set up all the front station modules and both approach module ends to the spiral. Forgot the  concrete pergola wasn't square when I first set up the front modules 30mm out so I when I straightened p the front modules I had check the  levels on each module which e=was  out and had to cut the legs thank god I gave got the Ryobi 18volt electric saw no lead made it easier to cut the legs.
Didn't have time to set up all the spiral have to wait till next time but now I can start painting the station modules 6 to paint, nail the track down and that bus wiring.
The 7th front module I still have to do some work in working out  how I will cut the module side frames starts at 1 and 1//2 inches high to 4 inches and a car port post is in the way as well.
Here is pic one of todays effort, won't get back to the layout till Thursday now.
Bugger I can't post more than one pic at the moment, has anyone heard of imgur you have a choice of uploading pics to URL , thinking of joining them as they are free to join .

Just post the next pic(s) without text in more posts.

If your wheels are coming off in the points, have you checked the BTB?
14.4mm BTB is a good starting point for toy market wheels through Peco points if you don't possess a standards gauge.
cheers
