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.

Westfest 2012

 Glorious sunshine greeted us in rural Somerset at the Village Hall. Spacious hall with good catering,  a steady flow of people made this a relaxing day, not as intense as the usual shows. A meeting of modellers and much banter was enjoyed.
Before the layouts I have decided to show the three trade stands which attended this years get together.
Top picture shows Brian Goldings Brynkits stand. Packed with fold up chassis and many other useful things, I have featured many of Brians products in previous posts.
Secondly, 3SMR was busy ,packed with much stock and some RTR from ROCO in 1:120 scale.
Lastly Finney and Smith ahd their usual selection plus some new 3D Printed Vehicles. These look excellent and the detail is superb. Available on the day were a tractor, stationary engine, Cement Mixer. All models had their own 3D printed 'box' which aids painting before separating from its carrier. Look forward to more!
