Accessible London - London Overground.

All the London railway stations :

This is my introduction to the London Overground rail network.
The Overground routes currently run by Arriva are being slightly renamed with old names in brackets!
Quite a lot of these stations are accessible in being step free to the platform, and the following 8 stations are step free to the train. (Canada Water, Canonbury, Dalston Junction, Haggerston, Honor Oak Park, Hoxton, Shoreditch High Street, and White Hart Lane .)


There are now six new lines in 2024, previously un-named overground lines and now sensibly referenced. This is good for Londoners and tourists alike. The new lines will become known as the Lioness line, the Mildmay line, the Windrush line, the Weaver line, the Suffragette line and the Liberty line.

The Lioness line runs between Watford and Euston Junction, via Wembley; and honours the achievements of the England women's football team.

The Mildmay line is named after a small hospital in Shoreditch which played a pivotal role in fighting the HIV / AIDS crisis in the 1980's. The line is between Richmond and Stratford, passing through Clapham Junction.

The Windrush line from Highbury & Islington to West Croydon, passes through many areas with strong ties to the Caribbean communities, e.g. Dalston Junction, Peckham Rye and West Croydon.

The Weaver line covers Liverpool street to Enfield Town, including Chingford and Cheshunt. With stops around Liverpool Street, Bethnal Green, Spitalfields and Hackney, the route travels through several areas of London known for links to the textile trade, in particular the early influx of Huguenots and their silk weaving skills. And latterly the Jewish migrants into the same area.

The Suffragette line is that between Gospel Oak and Barking. Named to celebrate how London's East End working-class community fought for women's rights, Barking is home of the longest-surviving suffragette, Annie Huggett, who died aged 103

The Liberty Line is that which is referred locally as the push and pull train between Romford and Upminster. According to TfL, it is named "to reference the historical independence of the people of the borough of Havering", through which it runs, as well as the celebrating "a defining feature of London". Whatever this means.

London Overground runs services from 112 stations along the following routes:
1a & 1b Dalston Junction to West Croydon. (East London line)
2a or 2b or 2c Dalston Junction to Highbury & Islington. (East London line)
