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.

Couldn't resist including this excellent photo of Howard Love's prize winning Barn scene-a superb piece of modelling which really looks better in the flesh.
Whats New details Fencehouses new chassis for the Tr-ang  TT Grain wagon.Also, Brynkits GWR Toad Brake Van Handrails are described. This etch I aquired from Brian a short while ago ,just after fitting plastic rod ones to my two newly built vans. However, they will be attached to the original fitted Van I made some time ago.
