Audio Announcements are a feature in Whitecoast City Railway and were added in Version 1.0. The On-Board announcements were slightly modified in Version 1.0.1.

Description[]

Audio Announcements are an essential part of Whitecoast City Railway. There are two types of announcements: Station announcements and On-board announcements.

Station announcements[]

As the name suggests, the station announcements are played at stations. They are played at all stations in game. Prior to 1.1, the voice used for these announcements are Text-To-Speech. Nowadays, they are voiced by Applesville. They are used to announce trains arriving at the station and which stations the train is calling at, trains passing through the station, cancelled trains, events (such as power outages and lifts not working) and general information.

Through service[]

If a train is stopping at a station which is not its origin or terminating point, the following announcement will play:

If the train's next stop is not a terminus: "The next train to arrive at platform/The train now approaching (platform number here) is the (HH): (MM/o'clock) City Line service to (insert destination here). Calling at: (all intermediate stations that the train will stop at after this station) and (insert destination here). This train is formed of (number of coaches the train has) coaches. First Class accommodation is (not available on this train/available at the (front/middle/rear) of the train.") Note: The chance of getting "The next train to arrive at platform..." or "The train now approaching..." is random for all stations.
If the train's next stop is a terminus: "The next train to arrive at platform/The train now approaching (platform number here) is the (HH): (MM/o'clock) City Line service to (insert destination here). Calling at: (insert destination here) only. This train is formed of (number of coaches the train has) coaches.") First Class accommodation is (not available on this train/available at the (front/middle/rear) of the train.")

Here are some examples:

Starting service[]

If a train is starting at the station, the following announcement will play:

If the train has more than 2 stops: "The train now standing at platform (platform number here) is the (HH): (MM/o'clock) City Line service to (insert destination here). Calling at: (all intermediate stations that the train will stop at after this station) and (insert destination here). This train is formed of (number of coaches the train has) coaches."
If the train has 2 stops: "The train now standing at platform (platform number here) is the (HH): (MM/o'clock) City Line service to (insert destination here). Calling at: (insert destination here) only. This train is formed of (number of coaches the train has) coaches."

Terminating service[]

Here are some examples:

Cancelled service[]

If a player decides to delete their train without finishing the route, or their train gets deleted due to too many SPADs, or derails, the following announcement will play:

Announcement: "Dear passengers, we are sorry to announce that the (HH):(MM/o'clock) City Line service to (insert destination here) has been cancelled. This is due to...
These are the possible reasons of cancellation:
  • "... a shortage of train crew."
  • "... a failure in the signaling equipment."
  • "... an unexpected derailment"

Here are some examples:

Skipping service[]

If a train is skipping a the station, the following announcement will play:

Announcement: "The train now approaching at platform (platform number here) does not stop here. Please stand well clear of the platform edge."

Currently, this announcement can only be heard at Newingham Street as this station is the only station to have services that skip it.

General Information[]

These announcements are triggered by a Platform Staff on-duty. Platform Staff must play these announcements every 10 minutes or less. These announcements have a one minute cooldown for Platform Staff and can be played via the "announcements" tab on the player's Platform Staff GUI.
