Monday I heard at Stratford this announcement:

'Platform 12 for the 1900hours service to calling at Cheshnut and Platform 12 for the 1900hours service to '

can't the digital announcer say the destination, plus there was tons of other stops missed out as well!

the 1900 left ok but the 1933 never turned up and tuesday it wasnt there either, seems ONE just run when they want on that line, why is that line so un-reliable?

Cheshunt is only on the announcement as that was on the route of the "old" 1748 Stratford-Cheshunt via Seven Sisters, which had all the Seven Sisters line stations on it.

However this new service runs via Totty Hale and thus a new announcement hasn't been recorded yet, hence the gaps in the announcements as the system doesn't have "Stansted Airport" in its vocabulary!

It's weird! You hear "This is the 13:33 service to Stanstead Airport calling at *5 second pause* Cheshunt *another 5 second pause* and Stanstead Airport. They need to fix that. And I think that there should be a Stratford - Seven Sisters/South Tottenham branch service which doesn't run at 5 in the morning :roll:
