The Tunnel at the Redfern end of Platform 26 at Central viewed from the platform on February 21, 1998.
Redfern's half built platforms. This view is looking towards Central. On the left is the tunnel mouth for the up track going under Lawson Street and the Illawarra lines. On the right are the girders for the down platform. This view shows that the two platforms were to be at different levels. The up platform was to be at the same level as Platform 11, and the down platform was to be at the same level as Platform 10. Photos taken on November 23rd, 1998.
