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.

Gillingham-Dorset Exhibition 2012

Purbeck 009 by John Thorne.
 An enjoyable time was had at Shaftesbury and Gillingham Railway Society's show.
Well organised with plenty of room between exhibits a steady stream of visitors was evident throughout the day.
A few pictures of other layouts with brief captions.
A new trader had an interesting range of card building kits,electrical components and tools at what I consider to be keen prices.Railway Scenics is a small online model shop based in Gillingham. See http://www.railwayscenics.com/
There are several downloads for 3mm scale including a 3mm scale rule which is free!
