Model Railway Time

Here is a circuit that
will convert any clock mechanism into Model Railway Time. For those who
enjoy model railways, the ultimate is to have a fast clock to match the
scale of the layout. This circuit will appear to “make time fly” by
turning the seconds hand once every 6 seconds.

The timing can be adjusted by changing the 47k. The electronics in
the clock is disconnected from the coil and the circuit drives the coil
directly. The circuit takes a lot more current than the original clock
(1,000 times more) but this is one way to do the job without a
sophisticated chip.
