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.

Signpost and a horse.

The signposts have been planted as have the road nameboards- one can just be seen along the fence.
The signpost had the top pair of signboards superglued to the lower section. The base was drilled to accept a brass pin, a hole drilled in the scene and the pin pushed through and glued in place.
The horse? I came across this casting during a routine clean up and put away session recently. Thought he looked just right looking over the fence under the tree so thats where he will stay!

Please be reminded of the Wessex Open Meeting for members:- Saturday 13th April 2013

I am reliably informed that ex-GWR steam is running in the county during the day. The engine is being turned on the Laverstock Triangle at approx 13.10.
