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.

It's a Family Affair!

 I am a victim of my own making! It all started with the pub sign of my eldest shown on Hennock.
This started a chain of events which meant that the rest of the clan wanted their own cameo.
So, and please excuse the indulgence, Teignford has to apease the rest- especially my granddaughter Jasmine.
Shown here are the mention of my grandson , granddaughter and the latest addition, my daughters dog!
Say what you like but it means involvement and interest to them all- still have to concoct my other two daughters though- and I want to avoid some terrible cliches often found!

The Hollyhocks are particularly magnificent this year!
