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.

Updates to Hennock

 Two weeks till Westfest 2011.

Whilst preparing 'Hennock' for Andover Exhibition I took the opportunity to updat e couple of things.
The Haematite works has had a collection of weeds planted along the front of the building, there is also some around the trees to the left. I will see what the reaction is to this and then perhaps let the weeds encroach a little more.
The meadow in front of the farmhouse has always been devoid of any use, so a flock of sheep have been introduced to add a bit of interest.
These are whitemetal castings from the 3mm Society and have been painted with Acrylic paint. Some have black faces but there my knowledge of all things sheep ends!
The base covering was scraped back to allow the
bases to be firmly attached with PVA. The flock seem happy in their new home-must have become very tedious languishing in the sectioned box labelled-Animals.
 Andover Exhibition Today.
