Announcements are a feature in SCR. Announcements can be heard on all trains and stations

Station Announcements

Station announcements are spoken by a man with a strong UK accent . Voice link: https://www.vocalware.com/index/demo, Voice: Hugh (UK)

The general announcement is when a train arrives at a through station. The format is: "Platform (number) for the (Time) Stepford Connect (or WaterLine or AirLink) service to (station). Calling at (stations). This train has (number) coaches."

Another type of announcement is when a train arrives at a station to terminate. The format is: "The train now approaching Platform (number) terminates here. This train is the service from: (station)." If the train is arriving from a depot, then (station) is the station after the depot. Coxly Depot->Coxly, Benton Depot->Benton, Faraday Road depot->Faraday Road, Whitney Green Depot->Whitney Green, Leighton Depot->Leighton Stepford Road, etc. If the train's first stop is a terminating station, the announcement is just: The train now approaching Platform (number) terminates here"

In the event of trains not scheduled to stop at the station passing the platform, there is a special announcement played to notify passengers of the pass. The format is: "The train now approaching Platform (number) does not stop here. Please stand back from the platform edge."

If a player (as a driver) deletes his/her train, then the announcement at the station the train would call at will be: "Your attention please! The (Time) Stepford Connect (or WaterLine or AirLink) service to (station) has been cancelled! This is due to, a member of train crew being unavailable.
