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 Meetings and Exhibition Schedule.

Thanks for visiting the Dorset Group Page. I hope   to keep all meetings and exhibition appearances up to date plus any 3MM Society events we are attending. Members model in various scales and gauges as well as the predominant 3mm Scale-layouts and stock building are all encouraged and we act as a self help group.
We are continuing to meet on the first Saturday of each month unless this clashes with other commitments.
Meetings will be from 1pm until 5pm, a small charge will apply to cover costs.
As I arrange visits and events I will update this list.  Please make sure you visit this page regularly to avoid a wasted journey.e-mail me on stevefackrell3mm@hotmail.com
