New York's Miss Subways - hmmm??!!!
If it still exists the docu. could be in the BBC Archives, or Sound Archives at the British Library. The latter has its catalogue online. Email them both.
Also you could post an appeal for info. on the railway / train php forums - there are a lot on the web.
Also try posting on uk.railway and
misc.transport.rail.americas on Usenet News Groups (via deja.com)
