This circuit is for the electrical types among you. The reasoning behind the project is shown below.

"Detailed workshops and maintenance yards can be the highlight of many model railways or dioramas. Unfortunately they usually suffer from one common problem. They are static. At the scale involved, it is not an easy problem to overcome either. Moving parts at this size present quite a challenge.

However making things move is not the only way to animate a scene. One classic sight in any industrial workshop or construction site is a man hunched over something he is welding, a fairly slow process that doesn't require much movement. None the less, anyone glancing in that direction is sure something is going on because of the flashes of light caused by the process.

Simulating such flickering is not difficult in electronics, and with the advances in LED technology, can be quite convincing."
