You asked

If it is possible, please may I obtain files containing all of the current iBus announcements, including Tramlink announcements, Overground announcements that play on the Class 710s, and Crossrail announcements that play on the Class 345s? As I really love hearing the announcements and I would love to be able to hear the announcements' raw audio files. If you aren't able to send some, I understand.
