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.

Getting there.

The chimney stacks have been made from a lamination of three pieces of card with brick paper wrapped round.
These have been glued to the roof sub-assembly and the basic roof covering applied.
Tiling to be added, facia to paint, guttering to be added, chimney pots , back door and pipework to do.
Still I still have six days- what can possibly go wrong?
Lots I suspect!

That's a very appealing build. It has the sturdy look of a real building.

I really like your approach to modelling shown on this blog: You want to get away from RTR, so you go for one of the least trade-supported scales. Impressive, especially because you've pulled it off!

OK won't take more of your time, with only six days left :-)
