You could add a resistor in series with the coil to reduce the voltage going to the coil.  The voltage does not have to be exactly 12v, 15v would be save for this short intermittent usage.  Adding a resistor will be easier, quicker and way cheaper than replacing the coils with 12 v one.

You may have to try several different sizes of resistors and check the voltage to pick a suitable size.

I am actually looking to go the other way.  My trains run on a 12v system.  Looking to use coil couplers without needing a boost circuit.
