It kind of reminded me of The Mist which was on TV Saturday.

There are many fine clocks in Railway Stations around the world, and one of my favourites is in the City of York in England.
This is how it looked until 2005 (pic by Ian Britton)


but just before a visit by the Queen in spring of that year, the station was repainted and in the process, the clock's colours were reversed: (pic by 'Mr Swift')




Note the smalll inset clock at right angles to the main faces, and the newly added spikes to keep pigeons away.
