Automated announcements onboard your trains.

The request was successful.

Dear London North Eastern Railway Limited,

This is a Freedom Of Information Act request. I would like to make the following request regarding automated announcements on your trains. My questions are as follows below.

• Can you please attach the sound files of all of the automated announcements for the new 800 and 801 trains. This is a very new system as your trains have just been introduced in to service. These are the new automated announcements system that can play a large variety of different automated announcements on your new 800 and 801 trains. You can send it in whatever format is suitable for you (mp3 or zip or whatever else is best for you).

• Can you please attach the sound files of all of the automated announcements for the MK4 carriage stock. These automated announcements on the MK4 carriage stock are very old and were installed during British Rail days but are still in place and occasionally get played on LNER services. They are mainly just a few basic generic automated announcements. You can send it in whatever format is suitable for you (mp3 or zip or whatever else is best for you).

• Can you please advise what the names are of the voiceover artists who voice the automated announcements on your 800 and 801 trains (on the new automated announcements system on your newly introduced trains).

• Can you please advise what the names are of the voiceover artists who voice the automated announcements on your MK4 carriage stock (on the very old system that is occasionally still used as mentioned just above).

This is all for my personal use and interest. Thank you very much for looking in to this. I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

James Anderson
