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.

Warley 2013.

 Well we are safely back home after a very enjoyable weekend up north.
Few pictures I'm afraid as little time could be had trying to take pictures- I was told that 17,000 came through the door on Saturday alone.
Still, here is Hennock set up on the Friday evening with the electrickery checker having passed our set up.
Bob and Tamzin were building stuff- a couple of Bob's buildings are shown below- sorry that the pictures don't do them justice!
The food was excellent, some of the best we have had and plenty of it. Unloading and loading didn't take as long as I anticipated so we left at a reasonable time and arrived home at a decent hour. So all in all a good couple of days- good chat and company- what else do you want?
P.S. Will show some of the goodies later in the week!
