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.

Hennock-Best Layout in Exhibition! Official.

 Sometimes you are lost for words- well I was today!
Hennock was voted Best in Show at the Swindon Exhibition by the host club members. This is a particularly appreciated award by fellow modellers.
And-What a cup-inscribed
Swindon Model Railway Club
John Wood MBE
Memorial Cup
Best Layout in Exhibition.
To say I was chuffed would be an understatement, my first award for a model railway and an appreciation of what can be achieved in 3mm Scale.
My thanks to my colleague Nigel Cullimore, I couldn't have achived this without his help and for that I am extremely grateful.

Bring a cup from now on!
