SO, apparently carriage N5406 which is on A6 has a new door closing announcement. This is a video from Sydney Trains Vlogs (all credits to him) showing this new announcement.

Does anyone have information to follow up on this?

It would seem that some people very seriously need to get a life

It's that same bloke who originally did all CityRail announcements, just been edited and enhanced
I have recorded the door's closing announcement from a V Set http://www.coalstonewcastle.com.au/stock/sound/downloads/
before they got changed and it's pretty well clear it's the same bloke, so therefore it's NOT a new announcement just been edited and enhanced

This is probally because people are too def to hear the announcements or being ignorant leaning on the doors so I would say they had to put the original announcement for the doors so the def and ignorant people can hear it, geez that other bloke sounded so soft hahaha

I'm not sure it's the same bloke. Actors are specially trained to have a neutral accent, understandable by all. Probably two different people trained in and told to speak with the same accent. Analysis of dipthong vibrato would help, but that needs special software.

As seen from the comments section of the Youtube video, the announcement is the default one from Downer EDI. Probably an issue with the train's announcement system.

Might as well ask this question here - above the doors there are ribbed/scalloped indentations, two on each side (you can see them at about 13 seconds in).  What is their purpose?  Ive been wondering for a while.

Hand grips for people to stop themselves falling over when the carriages are packed and you can't get an arm to a pole somewhere. I use them a lot when standing near the door waiting to exit as the train pulls into the platform.

Yeah right, on another point, I can't believe they spent thousands on painting the doors yellow, are they saying people cannot identify a door?
Is the whole safety thing out of control with people trying to justify their jobs?

smeg. They're like that because of the Disability Act.

Hello all,

Actually I think the painting of doors in alternate colours does have merit . In an era of an ageing population with dimming or fading vision , clearly marked passenger doors are a good thing.

Especially with the current ghastly desire for all over advertising when finding the door , or even the window, becomes problematic.

Thanks s3 Gunzel , I did not realise it was a Disability Act requirement , and which Parliament are we talking here please ?

Best wishes and regards, Radioman
