Train announcements really wind me up

I use the local UK train service every day to get to and from work. One thing that gets under my skin more and more is the on-train announcement:
"The next station stop will be the xxxxxx station......."
This is nearly always after the front of the train is well in to the platform of the station being announced.
Should it not be "The train is just arriving at xxxxx station ......" or even "... has just arrived at ...."
