A massive, big-city train station with many tracks and platforms and several levels.
About this creation
Contrary to my usual habit of putting up pictures before a creation is finished, this time i waited.
The Central Station is a large train station serving the Legoland metropolitan area, with high-speed service to nearby cities departing from six tracks. The station covers an area over nine plates, and is some six stories tall. The main roof arches over the track and platform area, extending from the headhouse out most of the way to the tunnel entrance on the opposite side.
Station amenities include an elevator, escalators, a full-service restaurant as well as fast-food, a newsstand, a bar, a ticket office, and police station. The main level looks out on the tracks and platforms, and the upper level has benches for weary travelers to rest.
The front entrance opens up at street level, which enters onto the station's main level:

you make your esculator? i'm trying to make one for my shopping mall?
great station by the way!!
The escalators that i've built are usually eight bricks wide (for an up and a down side), with a set of normal black steps and built-up gray slanted railings. Sometimes i also use the 2x1 flat grate pieces on the steps, and put in green or red lights on the ends (like the emergency-stop buttons). Usually that's enough to convey the shape of an escalator on minifig-scale.
