Operations edit london overground has its head office and control centre writing in Swiss Cottage. Rolling stock is maintained at Willesden Junction and New Cross Gate tmds, the latter being newly built for the extended East London line. There are also sidings at Silwood Triangle (just north of New Cross depot built in 201314. 34 Satellite locations for stabling trains include Stratford, london Euston and sidings (mainly used by london Midland and c2c 's Barking Depot. Train crews are based at stations including Euston, willesden Junction, watford Junction, new Cross, Stratford and Gospel oak.
24 25 no stations are planned at these locations as the line is on high railway arches, making the cost of any station construction prohibitive. 26 liverpool Street station services edit On the liverpool Street to Enfield Town, cheshunt (via seven Sisters ) and Chingford services, as well as the romford to Upminster service, were transferred from Abellio greater Anglia to TfL to become part of the london overground network. 27 28 Network edit Introduction edit The initial network, service levels and timetables were a continuation of Silverlink metro services, a set of routes primarily built and electrified by the north London and London north Western railway companies in the 19th and early 20th centuries. As the overground name implies, the majority of the network is above ground, and it mostly consists of railway lines that connect areas outside central London, with a considerable portion of the network in Zone. The network also uses Euston in central London, the southern terminus of the watford hippie dc line. The network interchanges with the bakerloo, central, district, hammersmith city, jubilee, northern, circle, metropolitan and Victoria tube lines, and also with the docklands Light railway, tramlink and Tfl rail networks. The overground lines appear on Tube maps issued by TfL, 29 and a separate map of the system is available. 30 Much of London overground passes through less affluent areas, and is seen as contributing to their regeneration. 31 The north London and Gospel oak to barking lines were previously considered by the Transport Committee of the london Assembly to be neglected and not developed to their full potential.
A peculiarity is that at Whitechapel the london overground runs below the london Underground (though there are other parts of the network where this occurs,. G.: the watford Junction to euston route between Kenton and south Kenton shared with the bakerloo line passes under the metropolitan line between Northwick park and Preston road ). South London line extension edit main article: south London line The next addition opened on 9 December 2012, from Surrey quays to Clapham Junction via the south London line, calling at queens road Peckham, peckham rye, denmark hill, clapham High Street and Wandsworth road. The extension uses an alignment between Surrey quays and just north of queen's road Peckham that had been disused since 1911, new track was laid following some major civil engineering works. Passive provision has also been made for a new station at New Bermondsey, to be constructed when funding becomes fully available. This was put on hold in 2009, although a suitable station 'foundation structure' has been built to facilitate completion in the future. Funding for the railway rebuilding project was secured in February 2009, 23 including 64 million from the DfT and 15 million from TfL, with construction beginning in may 2011. The route passes over both loughborough Junction and Brixton stations without stopping, and this lack of interchange stations was criticised by local politicians during the planning phase of the project.

16 17 On the north London line platforms at Stratford moved to new high-level platforms 1 and essay 2 from low-level platforms 1 and 2, the latter being needed for the dlr's Stratford International service. Platforms 1 and 2 comprise an island platform with step-free access to platform 12 and subway links to platforms 311. 18 On 27 September 2009, Imperial Wharf station opened on the west London line, between West Brompton and Clapham Junction. East London line extension edit main article: East London line On, the east London line became part of the london overground network when the Phase 1 extension was completed. 19 The former London Underground line was extended northwards, mostly along the former Broad Street viaduct of the north London line, to the re-opened Dalston Junction, and southwards to Crystal Palace and West Croydon.
Operations began with a homework limited preview service between Dalston Junction and New Cross/New Cross Gate, 20 with full operation between Dalston Junction and West Croydon/Crystal Palace on 23 may. 21 On 28 February 2011, the line between Dalston Junction and Highbury islington was opened. In attendance were the mayor of London and London Underground 's Managing Director. TfL announced in november 2010 that ridership was ahead of forecast at 92,000 a day, and that patronage at Surrey quays had "gone through the roof". 22 The incorporation of the east London line into the overground network has added substantial sections of line in tunnel, including the historic Thames Tunnel, the oldest tunnel under a navigable river in the world.
When the franchise was split up in 2007, county services were taken over by the london Midland franchise, 12 and the metro services came under TfL control. TfL decided to let this franchise as a management contract, with TfL taking the revenue risk. Announcements launch edit On 20 February 2006, the DfT announced that TfL would take over management of services then provided by silverlink metro. 13 Tenders were invited to operate the service under the provisional name of the north London railway. On 5 September 2006, london overground branding was announced, and it was confirmed that the extended East London line would be included. Initial London overground network from november 2007 (orange) and the east London line in 2010 (light orange).
14 On 11 november 2007, TfL took over the north London railway routes from Silverlink metro. The official launch ceremony was on 12 november 2007 at Hampstead heath station by the mayor of London, ken livingstone, with a later media event on the bay platform at Willesden Junction. The launch was accompanied by a marketing campaign entitled "London's new train set with posters and leaflets carrying an image of model railway packaging containing new overground trains, tracks and staff. 15 At the launch, TfL undertook to revamp the routes by improving service frequencies, staffing all stations, improving station facilities, introducing new rolling stock and allowing Oyster pay as you go throughout the network from the outset. 16 All stations were "deep-cleaned" 17 following the TfL takeover, and Silverlink branding removed. Station signage was replaced with overground-branded signs using TfL's corporate new Johnston typeface.

The principle was widely supported and was adopted into the first mayor's Transport Plan, published in 2001. Meanwhile, a pilot scheme was launched in 2003 to bring several National rail local services, mainly in south London operated by connex south Eastern, southern and south West Trains under the on overground Network brand. TfL introduced consistent information displays, station signage and maps on the selected routes in south London. Although this pilot was primarily an exercise in branding, some service improvements were introduced, and it was the first instance of the newly created TfL having a visible influence over National rail services. The pilot scheme was later dropped. In January 2004 the department for Transport (DfT) announced a review of the rail industry in Great Britain. 9 As part of that review, proposals were put forward by TfL for a "London Regional rail Authority" to give tfL regulatory powers over rail services in and around Greater London. 10 A result of this consultation was agreement by the secretary of State for Transport, alistair Darling, to transfer the silverlink metro services from DfT to TfL control. 11 Silverlink had two areas of operation: Silverlink county regional services from Euston to northampton, st Albans Abbey, bletchley and Bedford ; and Silverlink metro within the london urban area.
Several voluntary sector groups, the railway development Society (rds later railfuture, transport 2000's then London groups, and the capital Transport Campaign, launched a series of leaflets and briefings promoting a concept called Outer Circle. This used a name once associated with a semi-circular service that operated from Broad Street to mansion house, but ceased during World War. Mayor of London gla edit The pamphlets and briefings, first issued in 1997, initially suggested a route from Clapham Junction to the Greenwich Peninsula, intended to improve access from south London to the millennium Dome. However, this was thwarted by architect Richard Rogers citation needed who considered a railway route on an elevated viaduct could cause 'community severance' citation needed and so the victorian brick viaduct was demolished. Nothing further happened to develop this network until after the new Greater London Authority (GLA) was set up in 2000. But the lobbying discreetly continued with a series of short briefings published by one rds member based in North London. Mayoral and gla candidates were approached to discuss the viability of the outer Circle concept.
from the wilson government, citation needed along with the lack of interest in minor local train services by British railways' management, meant that few of these initiatives were carried forward. In 1979, the then Greater London council (GLC) decided to sponsor an improved service from Camden road, on the north London line, to north woolwich, opening up a previously freight-only line between Dalston and Stratford and linking it to an improved Stratford north woolwich service. This was given the marketing name 'cross Town Link-line and operated with basic 2-car diesel multiple units. The next initiative came from the glc in 1984, when the government supported the Broadgate development that would entail the demolition of Broad Street Station. The closure process was convoluted because of problems in making alternative arrangements for the north London line, and the remaining services operating from Watford Junction to the city. These would eventually run to and from liverpool Street via a new section of track, the Graham road Curve. Nevertheless, the new Richmond to north woolwich service quickly settled down, but the then British rail made a serious management error replacing the existing 3-car Class 501 electric trains (built 1957 7 ) with slightly newer but shorter 2-car Class 416 electric trains (built 1959. In 1988, by reorganising and reducing services on the Great Northern routes from moorgate, about 18 relatively modern Class 313 dual-voltage electric trains were transferred to operate the north London and Watford services, from both Euston and liverpool Street.

Great Britain are mostly run under franchises operated by private train operating companies, marketed together as National rail. The concept of developing a network of orbital services around London goes back to the independently produced Ringrail proposals in the early 1970s. 6, some of these were evaluated in the london rail Study of 1974 (The barren Report) and Barren suggested consideration of a north London Network of orbital services, based on a later suggestion by the ringrail Group, which involved using many existing rail routes, rather. The proposal from Barren was paperless for several overlapping services mainly using the. North London line, generally at 20-minute intervals.
