Do they still exist in your cities? These historic relics make a very nice sound as hundreds of letters constantly flick.

Victoria's has been replaced the only ones left I think are at liverpool st and charing cross but as i dont frequent these stations fell free to correct me.
Justme: I agree, I love the old flicker boards as they have more "character" and i love that sound they make. But of course the new electronic displays are much easier to use and can display much more information, all the new electronic displays in UK stations have really made travel easier since they display things like how much you train has been delayed by etc...

Seen them mostly in Germany and Eastern Europe train stations, I think Victoria Station in London still has them. Pretty sure on Frankfurt Airport aswell.
