While testing various versions of a Fast Clock for operations on my layout, I came across this site
http://www.dotric.com.au/trains/FastClock.htm 
It is free & downloadable.
 
It is only good for PCs, not Apple Macs.
 
It works on XP & W7 versions and after a few hiccups & discussions with the Doug, the owner/creator, it has been updated to the extent that this will be what I intend to use on the D&S.
 
It can be used as either a 12 or 24 digital clock & when paused at the end of a session & saved, it can be opened up again to continue on from the paused time ( this was one of its failings).
 
Also note that there is other technical information in the website which may interest you.
 
 
 
For those who maybe wondering what the heck is a Fast Clock
this is one description

"fast clock model railroad"

Thats pretty cool Ron..................I assume the departures have to be fed in manually?

We have a fast clock and timetable in RR&Co............it would be great to be able to combine the two.........the graphics on this are really good and I like the departure count down.

OK, played with the events and one must keep the description down to about 14 chaaracters - depends on screen size & it does count down .



I have it so the Operator for the next train is aware & the loco number- they can then refer to Train orders for actual details

If I ever get the time (sorry!) I think I will have a play with this to see if I can link it with the RR&Co clock
