No different to the real railway except the difference in height was ramped as opposed to stepped:-

I was happy with my solution. I cut blocks of wood that slipped firmly inside the platform section. I screwed these to the baseboard and the platform section are pressed down on to them . For a more permanent fix, screws can be put through the existing holes in the brickwork into the wooden blocks.
Mine came out at a god height to the coaches , but this was a result of having the platforms on a sheet of MDF. This roughly coincide d with the thickness of the BL battens.
So all worked well, but probably more good luck than good management.
