London Overground Unveils New Line Named After Historic Mildmay Hospital

The London Overground‘s London network has undergone a significant transformation with the unveiling of new line names and colors, departing from the traditional Orange ‘Ginger line’ identifier. Transport for London (TfL) orchestrated this overhaul.

Mayor Sadiq Khan welcomed the changes as a tribute to the diverse heritage of different London regions, while conservative party candidate Susan Hall criticized the move as wasteful virtue signalling.

Euston-Watford Junction line is now the Lioness line, honoring the England women's football team, painted in vibrant yellow on the map.

Stratford-Richmond/Clapham Junction has been christened the Mildmay line, in homage to the historic Mildmay Mission hospital pivotal during the HIV/AIDS crisis, represented by elegant blue lines.

Highbury and Islington to Clapham Junction/New Cross/Crystal Palace/West Croydon is now the Windrush line, showcasing links to Caribbean communities, depicted by striking red lines.

Liverpool Street to Chsehunt/Enfield Town/Chingford has been renamed the Weaver line, highlighting its historical textile trade roots in maroon lines.

Gospel Oak to Barking Riverside is now the Suffragette line, a nod to the East End movement for women’s rights, with vibrant green lines.

Romford to Upminister has transformed into the Liberty line, reflecting Havering’s historical independence, shown with sleek grey lines.

The Mildmay line, celebrated for its rich history caring for those impacted by HIV/AIDS, resonates with London’s past, present, and future.
