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.

Lou Reed Died but life goes on!

Recently, one of my hero's and the writer of 'A perfect Day' passed away.RIP Lou Reed.
 This in itself may not mean much to you , my followers, but to me it, hopefully, means that there is light at the end of the tunnel!
A lot has to be dealt with, as some you that know me may know, and I am not going to relate here.
Cutting to the chase of this post, you may think that things have slipped lately- I agree. With a Group Meeting fast approaching- I did get the new boards for Swanage cut by the way- working away for a month and two exhibitions on the horizon I have had little time to indulge myself in blog articles.
Poole exhibition is ten days  away on Rememberance Sunday with the 3mm meeting at West Byfleet the day before.Added to this is the preparation for Warley at the end of November .Something which I am very proud to have been invited to.
With a recent job commenced, which involves office work, something I haven't done for years, and I do mean years, time has been somewhat at a premium lately.
Bear with me and I hope to have lots of news and photos from the above activities to share with you in the coming weeks.
Until then a photo from the archives.
