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.

Javis Stone Walls- OK for 3mm?

 Came across these a few days ago.
Made by Javis, they are cleanly cast in resin and have a grey painted finish.
Measuring 11mm high- scales at 3ft 8inches-these come in lengths of 75mm about 35ft in 3mm.
The base needs flattening with a file or abrasive material and to butt join them needs a small amount of fettling. Weathering would bring out more detail.
At about 60pence a length these could be a quick and economic way to provide a boundary.
They will appear on Teignford- I'm just not sure where yet!
