On the basis that all the platforms are placed beautifully square, I would guess  the answer is "yes" George :doh:

I have to say they look very well made - I wish my platform edges were as straight! What did you use to make them?

Excellent work so far. Being from "just up the road" (Perth) I'm very familiar with Waverley so I will we following this with interest.

What era are you going to be set in?

Thank you for all the comments ! Here's the rough track plan of my Waverley layout . .Minor mods to this to accomodate the return loops on the left which will be under the west side of the station roof. . .all about the station comings and goings  with a little artistic licence to fit things in.
The platforms are purely card from new shirt inserts ! Printer paper lay on the track and run your finger along to make a crease where the track is . .this becomes your template to lay on the card . . even curves can be done like this and they fit first time . . When I get the roof in place it will start looking like the real place . . won't be long . .

I can reach the tracks ok with a little stretch ! Only 4ft to the backscene . .

It will be as near to nowadays as I can with a little artisitic license to reuse the closed platforms as I want more than 2 trains to run at once. A train entering the station on platform 2 for example would reappear departing platform 8 as it turns around under the west end of the station roof ! But visually it is Waverley !

Excellent work so far. Being from "just up the road" (Perth) I'm very familiar with Waverley so I will we following this with interest.

That's an ingenious idea. you have the feeling of a large passenger station but model only half of it. :thumbsup:
