I like the solution used by the metro in Dortmund, Germany: The LED displays that show when the next train is due and where it's headed also indicate how many carriages there will be and what sections of the platform these will be stopping in.

This way of presenting the information has the great benefit of being universally understandable, even for those who don't happen to speak the country's language. Much better than a PA announcement.
