How did Mickey Raphael do this?

I was just watching the first Austin City Limits with Willie Nelson. Mickey Raphael kept repeating this technique where he'd get sort of a train sound out of the harmonica. But it was a lot more choppy and brisk than the normal standard train chugga chugga you hear. It kind of looked like he was jerking the harmonica real quick across his lips when he did it. Stay All Night and Bloody Mary Morning (especially) are two examples where he really used this a lot. Has anyone seen this or heard and know how he does it? Or does anybody know what it's called?
Thanks a lot,
