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 Track Plan

Hennock Track Plan

Thursday, April 05, 2012


Because of one of our senior members having to move, his 3mm Layout-Deverton- has to be disposed of.
This excellent layout has appeared several times in Mixed Traffic in the 2010 editions.
The layout consists of three boards, 6mm ply on softwood framing, totalling 3500 mm x 600mm. The layout is fully wired with connectors between the boards and control panel. The track is Gem flexi (12mm Gauge) with fibre based points laid on cork and fully ballasted.
There is a built in transformer wired to a removable control panel with power and point motor (H&M) switches mounted in a track diagram. There are no hidden sidings - they are needed for both ends.
The layout will need to be removed from its shelving brackets plus fluorescent light fittings on a valance.
Several buildings will accompany the layout if required plus a stock of trees for yet to be developed areas.
The layout has to be removed by mid May from North Kent so some urgency if Delverton is to be saved.
A great opportunity to aquire a quality non completed layout.
Layout now sold.
