It also gives a series of pulses to the pendulum to keep it swinging. The chiming train This train operates the hammers for the four quarter chiming bells. It operates four times each hour and is triggered by the going train. The striking train This train operates the very heavy hammer for striking the Big Ben bell. It is triggered by the going train so that the bell is struck at the exact moment of the full hour, after the chimes have completed.
