    Who else thinks the narration on Boston sprinter route on the stream last night sounds like Nat putting on an American accent? I might be wrong but I heard similarities in aspects of the voice. Not saying it's a bad thing, I'm just wondering if anyone else thought it was Nat.

    Doubt it as it's quite old and pre-dates Nat's time with the company.

    I'm pretty sure it's Matts wife, I might be wrong though.

    I didn’t think of Nat. I thought the voiceover sounded quite genuine.

    It's my wife, she did the original NEC and the LIRR voiceovers too. Not only is she born-and-bred American, she's also a Massachusetts native, born in Concord and living in Framingham for a long time. She's never really had the accent though (I mean she's lived here for 26 years now so it's softened anyway) - but her mom has a fairly rich Mass accent :)

    I am honestly surprised anyone thought it was me, I can confirm I would have done a terrible job of narrating, especially with a fake American accent on my part.

    We need to hear a fake American accent from you on Thursday Nat just to prove it.

    That stream was a delight and made all my friends laugh for

    1: No sprinting on the Boston Sprinter
    2: Dovetail actively taking the PIS from their players

    I will be going through some old archives as I actually may have some footage of the Tyne&Wear Metro PIS boards, as they can be fairly entertaining sometimes when they bug out.
    Pretty sure they are stored in a folder alongside videos of the boards inside Transpennine Express services informing us that we'll soon be approaching Piccadilly "where this service terminates passengers".

    I figured it was your wife. Wish she sounded like she's from Quincy though
