London Overground Rail Operations Ltd is to take over several suburban services out of Liverpool Street Station to north east London from 31st May 2015 for 17 months.

The services – currently managed by Greater Anglia – include those between Liverpool Street, Enfield Town, Cheshunt and Chingford, and those on the Romford-Upminster line.

LOROL will run them until November 2016 when the current London Overground concession ends. The London Overground concession, including these latest additions, will then be re-let following an established bidding process.

Says Peter Austin, Managing Director of LOROL, ‘We are obviously delighted at TfL’s plans to appoint LOROL to run these new services. This recognises the efforts of the LOROL team in making the London Overground such a success and is an exciting development for us all.’

LOROL is a 50/50 joint venture between Deutsche Bahn AG (DB) and the MTR Corporation of Hong Kong.


  1. So London Overground are to operate on the Liverpool Street-Enfield/Chestnut/Broxbourne/Walthamstow Central/Chingford services and the Romford-Upminster line on 31st May/1st June 2015. Which means Crossrail in 2018 will be using the Stratford-Shenfield metro stretch with services to/from Shenfield, Heathrow, Reading & Ealing Broadway. Which also means that Abellio Greater Anglia will lose out on metro services and to invest new trains in the near future.
