Funkwerk is the name of an uncommon customer information system used on the British railways. Initially, quite a number of Northern stations used the Funkwerk system. Now only a few small Northern stations in the North East are known to use it, such as Teesside Airport and Redcar British Steel railway stations. Phil Sayer provides the announcements at these stations.
As the stations known to use the Funkwerk system now see less than 100 uses a year, the systems there have been permanently disabled there to save money from being wasted.
