The request was refused by Northern Trains Limited.

Dear Northern Trains Limited,

This is a Freedom Of Information Act 2000 request.

I would like to request copies of the sound files of all of your automated announcements that are used at your stations and onboard your trains please.

This should please include all of the following automated announcements sound files:

• Station Announcements - Ketech - current station announcements used at almost all Northern stations - voiced by Celia Drummond

• Onboard Announcements - Televic & TrainFX - older announcements that you are currently phasing out that are used on the class 150 155 156 158 170 195 319 323 331 769 trains - voiced by Trisha Jarman and Sebastian Tomas Sargent

• Onboard Announcements - Televic & TrainFX - newer announcements that you are currently phasing in that are used on the class 150 155 156 158 170 195 319 323 331 769 trains - voiced by Peter Corley and Laura Palmer

• Onboard Announcements - CAF & Siemens - current announcements used on the class 333 trains only - this is a much older and different system to all of your other classes - voiced by Martin Oldfield

If you have them in MP3 or WAV format or as ZIP files containing MP3 or WAV format that would be the best but any other format you have is fine too.

Thank you in advance for your help and i hope to hear back within twenty working days.

Yours faithfully,

David Smith

Your request will get denied, obviously because of the licenses that northern need for the announcements, and if they share them, they will get ceased.
