London Underground Announcements

Matthew Verity made this Freedom of Information request to Transport for London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Transport for London,

I am writing to request a CD containing any announcements used under TFL (Underground, Overground, TFL Rail, Bus, Tram, River Boats ect.)

I have read that you already readily supply the following;
• Bus ibus announcements
• Croydon Tram onboard announcements
• Ferry services (Riverbus Ferries)
• Ferry services (Woolwich Ferries)
• London Overground onboard announcements
• London Overground station announcements
• London Underground Jubilee/Northern/Piccadilly line announcements
• TFL Rail (Crossrail class 345) onboard announcements

I would be grateful if these could be supplied along with any other announcements that are allowed to be released, especially other LU lines.

These files would be treated in the strictest of personal use and will not be used for any other purposes than for my own personal enthusiast use.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Verity

Email has been sent. Thanks.

Dear FOI,
Thank you for the CD's, they arrived a while ago.
I do, however, require advice on how to open the piccadilly line .pcc files I was sent by post. I cannot open them nor do I have the program to.

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Verity

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Mr Verity

 

I am sorry you are not able to open the Piccadilly lines files. The PCC
format is the only format we currently hold them in. We've not been able
to convert them to a different file format.

 

Yours sincerely

Just use FreeFileViewer – it's what I use for the LU .pcc files. You can download it here:

So how exactly did you manage to open this .pcc file? I've tried to use the Free File Viewer linked below and it shows up as empty??? I've tried using the "Mass Effect .pcc unpacker" to no avail, as well as many other tools.
