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.

Toplight Dia D56.

The sides,ends and chassis are soldered together and this time I thought I would try something different.
I have used the roof from the 3MM Society 'B' Set kit.
This is the right length and roof profile so rather than cutting another Worsley extruded aluminium one it seemed easier.
The roof was glued on using Evo-stick when still wet. It seems to have adhered rather well and it is square and contacts the body all round.
So, having found a drawing for a right hand version then the vents and rainstrips should be the same location wise but a mirror image.
The bogie etches are from 3SMR and the wheels are the latest Society offerings which have to be assembled.
