Looking for alternate slot machine-style scroll method.

Folks, I am recreating a slot-machine style scroll effect which is pretty simple. I lineup the images I used in a column and essentially adjust the y position of the group those images are in; adjusting the speed accordingly.

My question is, is there a clever way of doing this without repeating the images as their own layers. This seems like something Motion would be good at/able to do, but I am not certain.

Right now if I want 3 images to seemingly repeat as I am scrolling up or down, I have to repeat those three images for as long as i want the scroll top happen per the speed of the scroll.

Granted I understand this depends on the size of the images too, but I am curious if there's a more efficient way for Motion to cycle these images so it's looping the motion applied to the group, giving the illusion that it's working like a slot machine, rather than me having to repeat the 3 images 5 or more times to accommodate the y value change.

Hope this makes sense. Not sure if I am articulating it well enough.
