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.

Swanage-an update.

As a result of showing the groups newly aquired layout on the blog, I have had some more information.
I was contacted by Geoff Gay who told me that the layout had been built by  Gerry Nicklin.
I then recieved a call from Gerry who is pleased that the layout is to be refurbished. He recalled the reason that the layout was donated to the Swanage Railway together with appropriate stock.
It is very satisfying to have recieved this information and now we can give the credit to the originator.
I hope that the group can refurbish to the excellent standards of the original.

I will do my best with the engine shed. Perhaps we could find out what materials were used Steve
