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.

3MM Society Mica Kit

Here are a couple of models made from the latest 3mm Society kit. The one on the left is a Dia. X5 as per the kit whilst the other is representative of a Dia. X9. Quite a lot of effort has gone into these including etches for steps and plates attached to the ends and frame.
Coming shortly is a tractor! I have been looking for one in 3mm for some time and have now managed to find a source. At the moment it is still in primer and will soon be painted to represent a Case L42 from which the model is derived. Watch this space.

My latest layout has been revised to be a terminus to fiddleyard in a U Shape.

Hennock is due to appear in 2011 at:-
Wilton-7/8th May
Andover 3/4th September
Weymouth 29/30th October.
