Dear Transport for Wales Rail Limited,
I would like to request the Ruth And Eryl station announcements that play over the Worldline system. The information is held as at Network Rail managed stations, they state " Network Rail does have access to a system at managed stations which automatically operates the announcements and the announcements can be downloaded from this system. " They then go on to refuse the request using section 43(2) (commercial prejudice). This exemption does not apply here as you own the files yourselves. Copyright is not a valid reason to refuse a request.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Seb Humble

Dear Transport for Wales Rail Limited,

I would like to submit an internal review please.

You say that you would have to pay Worldline for the extraction of the files but you own the files and provide the recordings to them as Ruth And Eryl are staff members. This is shown by the fact that some of the station announcements (such as Transport for wales and some of the stations) are already provided in the onboard announcements so that proves you have access to them. If you dont, as i said before, Network Rail state that they can download the announcements from the system. They refuse under commercial interests but you own the files directly and Worldline provide the system so you can download it directly from a station.

I will make a complaint to the ICO if my request is not granted.

Yours faithfully,

Seb Humble
