A few years ago the 185 PA was re-programmed to include all stopping points when the train leaves each station. It used to just say the destination and the next stop. However initially after the PA re-programming whenever there was engineering work the announcements reverted to the original recordings, for whatever reason. The 'other voice' could also be heard doing the safety stuff, the one with the strong Yorkshire accent, you don't hear her at all now on the new recordings.

Haven't been on a 185 affected by engineering works for the last couple of years so is this still the case whenever 185s aren't working to their normal timetable and stopping pattern? Have to say I much preferred the original PA recordings on the 185s - didn't drag on as much.
