Answer for London Overground

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The introduction of the new trains on the London Overground network largely depends on Bombardier's delivery programme, which is currently running late and for which they will pay liquidated damages.

However, we expect all trains to be delivered in 2010. This includes the electric trains for the existing operational London Overground lines and for the extended East London line, and the 8 diesel trains for the Gospel Oak - Barking line.
