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.

Brockenhurst Open Day

Well Sunday is Brockenhurst Model Railway Club's Open Day and Hennock is an invited layout.At the moment the layout is still in the loft as we have Relations arriving tomorrow and SWMBO has decreed that tonight is clean up night!
So tomorrow will be a rush,all still to pack and hopefully remember everything.
Hoping to dispose of some RTR OO items, Merchant Navy, Standards, Q1 etc.
Usually a good show so looking forward to it.
The postman (remember them?) brought not one but two invites to Exhibitions this morning. Wimborne and Shepton Mallet, must reason with co-conspiritors before accepting-watch tis space.

Hi Steve, if you haven't already, paint your front facia boards, they overwhelm the pics. There has been previous posts on the 3mm egroup on appropriate colours, and it may need revisiting, but matt mid grey or dark green are starting points.

I'd agree, a darker colour would probably be better, at least in the photos. Better still, get in closer. As well as cutting out unwanted stuff it gives you the chance to take more pics without the same bit of layout appearing every time.
