While searching for railroad station platform announcements I can find lots from the UK and from India - very few if any
from the US. Anyone have a link to a few intelligible ones?
Thanks

Have you ever HEARD an intelligible announcement?  Most of them sound like "MRMPH MRR, MRPH MRM o'clock" to me.   :facepalm:

I recorded a few for a friend once. Added a little static and reverb and it came out pretty well. If you needed a few custom ones, I could probably find my good microphone again.
