here are some videos of the clock in action:

although the creative mod was used for construction the clock itself works in vanilla.
If there is interest I can provide the map or something...

so here is the save file:
trainclock23552.zip
the save file (you will need the creative mod; and don't freak out if everything is crazy fast when you open it; the game-speed is high from filming the time-lapse)

and here is the 0.15 Blueprint string
(the string is too long so here is a link: https://pastebin.com/wfcrMhsy)
(you will still need to do some things after placing the blueprint because for example trains aren't included in blueprints)

I feel like I need this running on my desktop somewhere.

Eheh my work computer is a potato. Well, no, that's not fair, it's actually pretty good however it's running a business-grade quad video card which is suitable for office applications and some web browsing but the measly 512MB VRAM (and that between 4 screens) just doesn't do games =P

Well the PC I filmed it on doesn't even have a graphics card... Good old Intel HD graphics...

Yep. It's designed for business use, screens that are 99% static visuals and occasionally you might move or resize a window.
