Hum maybe a egg better type of thing or some mixking tool
Could it be a train timetable sign in a railroad station giving info about the incoming and outgoing trains? It’s the flipping of the train info as the trains arrive and leave. It sounded just like the ones I remember like the big one in the lobby of Penn Station.
My son wonders if it is a ticker tape machine?
One of those signs where all the little tiles flip?
And Michael says,” One of those old signs at bus stations where the numbers are on individual little tiles that flip?”
A glacier? Just kidding.
Something at a train station is my first guess too–having commuted a great many times through Penn Station, Laurie’s guess makes a lot of sense to me, although I don’t recall them being nearly so loud. Perhaps a train itself coming in? Would have to be a very soft train from a bit of a distance though…
An old steam train?
Train cars going by?
Mechanical train/plane schedule. I love those! Reminds me of “the difference engine”.
A typewriter in a busy building.
