Within the platform listings, zones are separated with commas, and platforms within zones are given as a range with a hyphen. This should be sufficient unless there are any stations where non-contiguous platforms are within the same zone, in which case a + is used to link those non-contiguous platforms. "Global" indicates that the station is not zoned and that all announcements are played through all speakers.

East Midlands Trains stationsEdit

All stations that feature Anne now have miscellaneous announcements provided by a female employee of East Midlands Trains, and Anne's generic messages aren't commonly used, but these are normally supplied by Stephen Carlyle Hearn after winning a competition.. At larger stations, these messages (provided by Stephen) are unique to the station they are used at, e.g. "Welcome to Nottingham station..." A new anti-smoking message has been introduced. Most smaller EMT stations have the text to speech voice Acapela Rachel do all announcements.

(Below are the information of the Ditra system)


Chimes are only used in some SWR stations - Chimes would either be in 3 or 4 Tones (depends on the voice), where Phil has 4 tones while Celia has 3 tones.

A different 3-tone chime is sounded on the CIS system boards when a fast train enters the station loop, or a correction is made to the CIS (customer information displays). This only applies to Ferrograph Display boards, which are used in most SWR stations right till now.

Announcements as below except where stated:

(Once the train as arrived, the announcement will not play the "via" message.)

Services originating at a station are announced 2 minutes prior to departure, unless otherwise specified.

Note that both the newer and older Celia systems use the same 'South Western Railway' recording. Phil Sayer's recording of 'South Western Railway' is a mixture of 'south' from an earlier recording and 'western railway' from his GWR announcements, since he died before South Western Railway began operating the franchise.

Though she does no train announcements at South Western Railway's Ditra controlled stations, Atos Anne's security see it, say it, sorted announcement is used at these stations.

(Below are the information of the Atos system)

There are 2-3 train announcements per train on SWR's Atos stations, depends on situation.

2 Tone Chimes are used in some Atos SWR stations.

Standing announcements are only played when there's still 1.5-2 mins left before planned departure time when the Upon Arrival announcement has finished playing with nothing to announce.

Southern (GTR) stations Edit

The Atos system are replacing both Amey and Ditra systems across Southern's network with effect from October 2017.


Ditra's chimes are only used in a few occasions in Southern's Ditra station network, including Platform Alterations, Cancellations, Fast Train Approaching and Please Stand Clear from the Train at Platform (X) announcements. This setting applies to all Southern Ditra's stations.

Unless otherwise specified, chimes in Southern stations are used on 3 main occasions: Platform alternations, train cancellations and fast train approaching announcements.

Please note: Some Southern's stations train announcements can only be heard in the relevant platform loud speakers only. (Example: Platform 1 and 2 are on the same Platform island with Phil as the announcer, train announcements in platform 2 could only be heard in loud speakers on Platform 2, but not in platform 1, although there is a chance to hear Platform 2 announcements on Platform 1 loud speakers in a very dimmed volume.) Exception only includes platform alternation announcements, and the interruption of fast train approaching announcements during a train announcement, which would make the rest of the particular announcement be heard in both platform speakers.

Announcements as below except where stated:

2 minutes before arrival : Full announcement

Definition of Full Announcement on Southern's network:

"Platform 2 for the 09:28 Thameslink service to Brighton. Calling at Burgess Hill, Hassocks, Preston Park and Brighton. This train is formed of 8 coaches. Platform 2 for the 09:28 Thameslink service to London Victoria."

Train arriving at the station:

"The train now approaching Platform 2 is the 09:28 Thameslink service to Brighton. This train is the service from Bedford."

After arriving: "Haywards Heath, this is Haywards Heath. Mind the gap between the train and the platform. Mind the gap! The train now standing at Platform 2 is the 09:28 Thameslink service to Brighton. Calling at Burgess Hill, Hassocks, Preston Park and Brighton." (Ends here)

The Atos system only does one announcement per train:

"Platform 4 for the 1048 Gatwick Express service to London Victoria. Calling at Gatwick Airport and London Victoria only. This train has 8 coaches." (Ends here)
