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.

3MM Society Mixed Traffic January 2013

The latest edition of the 3MM Society Journal-Mixed Traffic, is to hand.
In a packed, practical issue we are treated to a description of scratchbuilding Junction Bracket Signals by Trevor Lloyd-Lee. The article includes sourcing and suppliers of materials needed but also prototype notes.
John Sutton demonstrates that the thigh is the limit with forming of the Saddle Tank on Amble Junctions recently available Hunslet Austerity/LNER J 49 kit.
Discussions are invited for a proposed Loco Chassis jig which need not prove too expensive.
Add to this some superb images of Peter White's 'Masham', informative Q&A and Blastpipe and yet another well balanced edition has been produced.
There is also the latest update on the Society Shop and on this subject there is an obituary for the Society's Trading officer of fourteen years, Andy Green. I fully echo the comments made and always had a good rapport with Andy-I was pleased to be one of those who 'got' his sense of humour.
