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.

Dorset Group Meeting 21st July 2012.

 This very nice man (Once you got to know him) gave a splendid presentation to us in the summary surroundings of our home at the former Hurn Railway Station in sunny East Dorset. They say that the sun shines on the righteous- well, we must have been good today!
Explaining the materials and the methods he uses, Jeff gave an excellent talk about his products and many useful tips regarding paints and card that are his preferred materials.
Jeff is a driver for Railfreight and many entertaining stories kept us all entertained for all of the meeting.
Pictured are a fraction of the designs produced and we may have persuaded him to consider some in 3mm.
Jeff Weston can be contacted by e-mail at jeff283@btinternet.com
More of his creations can be seen on Ebay under N gauge buildings.
