Yes, you're right! I remember reading an interview when the Different  
Trains was released and if my memory serves me right Reich said he  
had been setting up tape loops with train sounds to analyze them and  
transform the action he heard to notation for the musicians. And  
those old train veteran people's voices do also sound looped, but I  
would guess he was just flying it into the right place directly on a  
twenty four track tape recorder...?
