Bespoke Platform Announcements
Welcome to our Platform Announcement Recording Service
As the name suggests, we are able to record and supply a set of platform announcements specifically tailored to your layout. There are three styles available
Early – station staff make announcements over station tannoy, that system having the typical background hum and echoing nature of early 20th century train stations
Mid – computer generated voices provide automated announcements, typically late 20th and early 21st century
Modern – human voice recordings joined by computer to produce the idiosyncratic sound of more recent times
The ordering process is similar to that for commissioning a bespoke soundscape. Firstly, you instruct us with the train arrival and departure times you would like to hear on your layout
We will draw up a script including your announcements, interspersed with general announcements and send it to you for amendment or approval. This process is repeated until you are happy with the recording script and recording style, of which we will also send you a clip. Up to this point, you are under no obligation, and may withdraw from the process owing us nothing
If you wish to proceed, we will issue you with an invoice. Given that at this stage you will have approved both the script and the recording style, the payment requested will be non-refundable.
Upon receipt of your payment, we will add your recording to our work schedule. Once the recording is complete, we will send it to you as an mp3 file.
Typically, this process takes around 10 working days – although this is, of course, dependent upon how many orders are already on our work schedule at the time you make your payment
The minimum order is for 8 bespoke platform announcements with 4 or 5 standard messages interspersed. The cost of this service is £35. If you require more than 8 bespoke announcements, they can be added at £2 per additional arrival or departure
