Hennock was inspired by my eldest daughter whilst sat on the platform of Staverton Station in Devon.
In an effort to get away from Ready to Run I chose 3mm scale to model this layout having previously exhibited a large Tri-ang TT layout. I hope the ramblings that all to frequently appear will be of use to you no matter what scale!
The track diagram shows a simple passing station with a couple of sidings. All track is PECO Hom-12mm gauge with turnouts operated by the wire in tube method. Control is provided by Gaugemaster HH with feedback.
Locos are mostly whitemetal kits running on etched chassis powered by Mashima 9/16 motors with Branchlines 40:1 gearboxes. Wheels are Markits with the latest 3mm Society products being introduced.
Coaches consist of Society 'B' Sets and coaches from etches by Worsley Works, Brynkits and 3SMR. A vast range of wagons are from the 3mm Society list with Finney and Smith providing the China Clay , Gunpowder and a few etched kits.
Hennock has appeared in Railway Modeller and Model Rail.

Shunters Wagon

 Sorry for the lapse of posts, I hope to improve the regularity in the near future.
Moving on, this is a delightful little kit which is some age.
It is of course a model of a Great Western Shunters Truck.
Made, I believe, by K's, the kit is white metal throughout and comprises just a few parts- so long since I made it, I can't remember how many!
The handrails are Hornby examples from a sgnal gantry, painted white, they look a reasonable representation.
The body is finished in engineers black- and the transfers are from the old Woodhead sheet- although
not exactly right. The name beat me so the branding reads 'Not in common use'.
Altogether an unusual model but another wagon for use on both 'Hennock' and 'Teignford'.
This weekend coming, the 29th/30th October at the Weymouth exhibition with 'Hennock'. Come and say hello if you can attend.
New post on Teignford today. See L/H side 3mm related sites.
