London Underground voice announcements: update 2
Remember my old post with London Underground voice announcements? I’ve found many more recordings in my collection, including the announcements on the Bakerloo and Jubilee lines. So here is another update.
Some of these were sent to me by Pavel Shadrin. Thank you!
Car line diagrams source: Transport for London
Only one regular announcement:
And one overlapped with a service announcement:
And a service update on Baker Street:
Lancaster Gate — Marble Arch (towards Epping):
Liverpool Street — Bank (towards Ealing Broadway):
Tower Hill — Liverpool Street:
Operator announcement at Aldgate:
Operator announcement at Canary Wharf:
Canary Wharf — North Greenwich:
Moorgate — Euston (towards High Barnet via Bank):
Notice how the Hammersmith & City line is called just “ Hammersmith” line in these announcements.
Osterley towards Heathrow:
Highbury & Islington — Green Park on a weekend where many services were suspended:
Notice, that the suspended Northern line was not even listed in the “change” section.
Here the Northern Line announcement is shortened. I thought it was because the whole announcement was getting too long, but hold on.
Here, the Northern line announcement is shortened again, but the overall announcement is not nearly as long. So I have no clue.
There is no Norther line on Oxford Circus, but it’s mentioned nevertheless, presumably due to its importance (the Hammersmith & City was mentioned only at King’s Cross).
An operator announcement at Euston:
This announcement on Highbury & Islington turned out to be very useful for my own journey planning:
On a station of the Bakerloo or District line:
Train operator announcements:
I have updated the original post with the new recordings, make sure to check it out for my whole collection.
That original post started with this text (no longer does):
I have recently returned from London where I had recorded a number of voice announcements on the Underground. Here I’m sharing this small collection for those interested. Sound quality may vary.
Check out the train operator announcements on the Circle line; the Victoria line announcements for a red signal, doors opening on a right-hand side, final destination; the London Overground announcements.
By the way, still missing is Bakerloo, Metropolitan, Waterloo & City lines and DLR. If you have any recording in your collection or would like to make some, do not hesitate to share them with me. Thank you!
