Departure Procedure and Sounds

Older trains have driver announcements, newer ones have recorded voices. Typical announcements: "Dørene lukkes" ("Doors closing"), "Neste stasjon [name]" ("Next station [name]"). MX class trains have a low "bip-bip-bip" when the doors close. Before intersections, they say "Dette er linje x til [terminal station]" ("This is line x to [terminal station]"). At certain stations, "Vær oppmerksom på avstanden mellom tog og plattform" ("Mind the gap between train and platform").
