London Overground branding info

This message board post reports back on a London Overground talk given last night at the London Transport Museum. Highlights include:

  • Shepherd's Bush station won't open until November 11
  • Existing stations are to be completely rebuilt. Before then, no obvious Overground branding. Afterwards, full tube-style roundels
  • Similarly, the existing trains won't receive the Overground livery.
  • The new Electrostars will have some sort of walk-through connections between carriages, though details are hazy
In related news, the first Electrostar went into production this week.

TfL seem to know what they're doing but I'd be interested to see what sort of money they are budgeting for station rebuild and reconditioning work.
