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.

Replica Railways Waterslide Transfers.

 I have mentioned this manufacturer previously but thought I would expand a little.
Having run out of HMRS Pressfix lining, the product seen to the left was purchased some time ago after discussions with Godfrey on the Railwayana stand- at Romsey I think.
Finely printed, I think they are OK for 3mm scale. One thing I did find is that it is best to cut through the backing completely not, as I found out, try and peel the transfer off after partly scoring the backing. Also use a sharp knife!
The backing was soaked with a Reeves Number 8 Nylon Hair brush (for those who like technical details). The transfer released evenly from the backing and then it is just (did I say just?) a matter of teasing the lining into place.
How I wish I still had a steady hand!
Still-off to finish what I have started so more anon!
Note-I have no connection with Replica Railways other than a very pleased customer.
