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.

Scenery starts in earnest.

The first application of scenery has started on the third board. This isn't to say that the first two are ready- far from it. This small corner is where The Jasmine Inn will be located and it is really a try out of ways that the flock and road surfaces will look before charging headlong into the whole board.
Hopefully it doesn't look too bad to you dear reader- I am quite pleased although there is a lot of flock to be stuck before its finished- I will  have posted some more on Teignford blog in the next day or so.
Tell me what you think.
