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.

 Back to the old subject of Kitmaster Coaches again!
This CK- Corridor Composite is to join the two BSK-Brake Second corridor- coaches previously described.
It has now come to adding the lining and numbering so this shows before and after the lining being added.
The transfers are shown applied to one side- left long purposely to aid application. These will be trimmed once thoroughly dry.
The next thing after the other side has been lined is to find the numbering sheet so that the first class numeral can be placed on the relevant doors and the coach number fixed.
Being used to BR Southern Region (in 4mm ) there are no set numbers just the C1 markings on the coach ends.
It is really surprising the amount you learn when researching information.
