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.

  The latest edition of the 3MM Society magazine has hit the doormat!
26 pages of articles and photographs is started with an editorial enthusing about the forthcoming Fiftieth Year of the 3MM Society.
The 2014 AGM is covered together with the winners and runners up of the various competitions. The magazine is littered with photos of the entrants which will encouage others to enter another time.
Richard Brice contributes a fascinating piece on the possibilities of Kitmaster Coaches whilst Barry Witteridge describes his first 3mm layout- Wedmore.
Alan Smith backdates a Dogfish whilst Jim Barry recalls his days with the P-Way gang. A layout based on Bere Alston is suggested by David Hart together with rolling stock that could be used.
Add to this a couple of Eric Bruton's classic photos of LMS steam, Blast Pipe, Bits and Pieces and a piece by Geoff Gay describing his 50 something layout and another excellent edition has arrived.
