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.

3MM Society Mixed Traffic October 2013.

 Mixed Traffic 193 has hit the carpet and an excellent quarterly edition it is!
Part three of Stephen Moor's refining of a BR Class 5 is followed by Andrew Comben's Cross Kitting to produce Class 54/64/74 Pannier Tanks.
Graham Shirley updates the progress at Horncastle whilst Wim Harthoorn recounts the adaptation of the Tri-ang T176 open wagon. Alan smith describes a months work creating a complete Ballast Train and the 50-something challenge shapes up.
More of Eric Brutons photos precede the What's New description of the Wizard models Servo Controller for Signal and Point operation.
Blastpipe brings proceedings to an end together with several interesting adverts.
Also included are fitting tributes to Peter Gentle and Dave Martin- two 3mm stalwarts who sadly recently passed. There has also been tributes in the Modelling Press and E-Groups to these two gentlemen- my humble condolences also go to both families.
