Future of London Overground – S-Bahn?
Source: Stephen Cryan
Is it not time for the DfT to define precisely what London Overground is or should be? If LOROL is now running services into Euston and Liverpool Street then should not the services from other termini be included?
I would include ALL suburban services which remain in the London boundaries, or at least the M25 area. (Thus an exception could be Waterloo - Shepperton).
Then since they are not easily identifiable as are the Underground lines I would designate each with a number - as are the S-Bahn services on German railways. Therefore, O1, O2, O3 etc.with the possible extensions of letters to explain branches such as O1A,O1B,O1C,O1D to indicate the branches to e.g. New Cross, West Croydon, Crystal Palace, Clapham Junction.
Is it not possible to sit down and think properly and sensibly what London Overground is going to be?
