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.

Group Meeting Exhibitionism!

 I make no excuses for this set of photo's!
This is my latest layout-Teignford-and shows the progress made so far and the start of the scenic additions.
I am a firm believer in using the most cost effective materials available to me. Our local art shop has a box of offcuts. These comprise the best quality art mounting board-Daler. They are the the bits that are surplus to framing.
The material is very stable- Hennock is over six years old and uses this material for it's buildings and scenery foundations.

All you see here is based on mounting card, many different materials have been used to create the covering of the buildings and platforms. Incidentially the platform surfaces are very fine grade Wet and Dry paper as available from your local car accessory shop. You can alter the surface by simply rubbing your finger across .
It is all part of the fun of Railway Modelling to find useful materials and need not involve too much Chequebook or Credit Card use.
