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.

Tin Roofing.

 After cutting out the sheets, it was time to affix to the false roof. This had been made up from some thin strawboard- the type of card that backs notepads etc.
As I wanted a'just about fixed' type of roof, I wasn't too fussy about fit. This can be tidied up once the lot is dry.
I hope the selection of pictures gives a good impression of what I am trying to achieve.
Once a wash of tin colour followed by rust, I hops it will turn out OK.
The pictures are a bit random today- had to play about with settings to bring out the required detail.
Digital cameras are not really my thing- well any camera really. Unfortunately it is a necessary evil- otherwise you would just see words which to my mind anyway -gets tedious.
So patience needed whilst it drys- thenclean it all up.
