London Overground Announcements

Request ID: FOI-2507-1617
Date published: 08 June 2017

You asked

Is it possible to be sent a CD copy of the most up-to-date current copy of the London Overground station announcements (not the on-board announcements, just the station CIS files). I believe new stations have been recorded (for London Midland services at Harrow & Wealdstone) to include station names which were not previously on the system.

We answered

Thank you for your email received on 14 March 2017 asking for a CD of current London Overground audio announcements.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and TfL’s information access policy. I can confirm we hold some of the information you require.

A CD of the London Overground announcements will be sent to you upon receipt of a postal address.

Please note that announcements used on the services that London Overground took over from Abellio Greater Anglia on 31 May 2015 are not held as audio files. They are held on a server and we access them through existing server and rolling stock. I can confirm that we have no current plans to create any new recordings.

Please also note that while access to this material will be provided to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, you are not granted any rights to any of the intellectual property that exists in it or granted any permission to make secondary uses of it.

TfL owns all intellectual property (including, without limitation, copyright) in the material supplied and will defend such rights.

If you wish to make any secondary use of the material provided, you must first obtain the consent of TfL (which may be withheld) and, if consent is granted, a fee may be charged, in accordance with the terms of the Reuse of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely
