Apologies are a common thing to hear on the train. Heck, if the trains are just a little bit off schedule, they just apologize profusely for the rest of the trip.
Problem is, some things like weather or a person-related incident can stop whole tracks, or divert trains, or change their speed from stopping at the stations you expect to some different stations. So, if you miss part of the message, or it's later in the day and they just give a vague apology, your brain starts to panic WILDLY about what's happened and do you need to keep listening. Are you on the right train. etc. ^_^;;
