Answer for London Overground (1)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Depending on an agreement being reached with Network Rail to allocate more train paths to London Overground, TfL will be able to run four trains-per-hour from 2018 when it receives delivery of trains, which will boost the existing fleet. This can include Sunday services if there is sufficient demand.

TfL is currently planning to increase the number of trains after 22.00 on this route to three trains per hour in the December 2017 timetable.
