London Overground 2026

City Metric has found another new TfL map, this one showing how the London Overground network will be expanded by 2026. The site explains:

The map shows all the bits of the rail network whose operators will be answerable to the city’s government, rather than the national Department for Transport. That includes the existing Overground network; the West Anglia suburban lines into Liverpool Street (which TfL is taking over some time next year); and Crossrail (which is currently under construction, and which neatly ties the rest of the network together).

In total, the network will comprise six lines and an extension to Essex.
