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.

Dorset Group Meeting-April 2013.

The day was kind as the sun radiated through the Purbeck Hills, making it seem a lot warmer than it actually was-anyway thats enough sentiment for this year!
Sadly, only three of us managed to attend so there was lots of room for each of us.
For the first time I was able to look at Teignford from afar and actually take a photo of the whole layout plus a view that I am unable to take in the railway room.
Things to do keep cropping up so I will reveal more of our meeting tomorrow.
I took the opportunity of visiting the Wimborne Model Railway Exhibition- a busy weekend. I must say how much the new building is compared with the old. The halls are light and airy, and warm. Well done Wimborne for a good exhibition experience.
Also, I was pleased to see Jeff Weston who has recovered from his recent accident-he's wheely well now!
