MODEL RAILWAY TIME Circuit
Here is a circuit that will convert any clock mechanism into Model
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.
