    Does anyone know how I could build one? As in where do you get the movement for one. Or even where do you buy a finished one. Think this would be neat while running trains.

    I think you mean a fast clock. We take the hour hand off and use the min. hand as hours, so 1 hour is 12 hours model time. You can also get software for your computer and use that. Here's a link. http://www.stanstrains.com/SoftwareFastClock.htm Fred

    SO basically you put the hour hand where the minute hand would go. Could you not also modify a minute hand to fit where the seconds hand would be?

    Sure, but we never did anything that fancy. :) We just too off the hour hand. Yeah, seconds become min. Fred
