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.

Westfest 2012.

 A couple of layouts also attending were, firstly Richard Popes Dunkerton.
Built originally by Bob Brown, who this year was demonstrating his buildings for his new layout , this minimum space layout really captures the atmosphere of the former GWR Cammerton branch.
The layout is a combination of Monkton Coombe and Dunkerton stations.
The run round has enough of a head shunt to enable a 14XX loco and Autocoach to shunt as was prototypical- too much work to disconnect the Autotrailer.

 Peter Whites Masham is a superb piece of work!
In fine scale 14.2 mm gauge,  the layout captures the small market town station in North Yorkshire. It is the terminus of a 71/2 mile branch from Malmerby.
My photos don't do the layout justice- there is just so much to admire and appreciate.
Adding to the atmosphere are Peters kit built locos and stock.
