Brockley gets plugged in to London orbital

Farnsworth: Balderdash! I'll be the judge of who's cool, using the cool-o-meter! Good Lord! I'm getting a reading of over 40 mega-Fonzies.

BBC reporter Tom Watson points out one more cool thing about the news that the ELL Highbury & Islington service starts on Monday - it means that the ELL will become part of the new London orbital rail line proper.

A man could travel to Willesden Junction, was he so minded, although he would have to switch platforms at Highbury & Islington. In 2012, we'll be able to go full circle via Clapham Junction.

This re-imagining of the Overground map (from Going Underground) makes the point very nicely.
