TfL’s London Overground is being given control over London’s entire suburban rail network

This gets a huge thumbs up from http://www.londontu.be:

London’s entire suburban railway network will be handed to Transport for London to be run by the capital’s Mayor, it has been announced. TfL currently runs the Tube network and London Overground services, but the capital’s extensive above-ground rail network has long been under the control of a patchwork of competing private franchises. Under the new plan, all suburban lines in the capital will be integrated into TfL’s Overground network as their current franchises expire, the city’s Evening Standard reports.
