It's clear from the above that the creation of Lodon Overground has been a mammoth undertaking, and the project has had to overcome a whole raft of problens on the way to fulfillment. Even now, enthusiasts will be unable to ride around the circle without changing trains, as part of the system is powered by a 'main line' style AC overhead supply, and part by Southern-style DC third-rail supply.Read more ›
My only gripe - the only map of the Overground is hidden on page 70 and is only half a page. I would have expected a full page map. And a map showing its interaction with other lines on Network Rail would have been a good addition. Something for the second edition, now that the Clapham Junction branch is open.
