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.

3,000+ visits to Dorset 3mm!

 Just a few of the popular posts which have seen the blog recieve more than 3,000 visits in the month of July 2013.This I take as a vote for 3mm!
This milestone is much appreciated and from the comments I have had the content seems to interest not only 3mm scale modellers.
More of the same? You bet!
3mm scale is on the up- visit the archives, the amount of kits available will probably surprise you.
Add to this the 3mm R-T-R Survey which was very positive- this after several attempts to belittle your writer and the corruption of the original survey!
Will I take this personally? NO!
Never berate another scale- ideas are the same for everyone- it's just the measurement that is different.
I will not lower myself to some comments that have been made- they know who they are-so do I in some cases- if 3mm R-T-R comes to fruition then some will have to eat their printed out comments-here's hoping!
