Do you include Crossrail under TFL. Tapolw is now a TFL sation with signs to prove it. As are presumably Burnham Langley and stations to Paddington.

Simple answer - yes, I have done.  As part of the Overground; perhaps I should edit the list and add it there.

London Overground and TfL Rail are separate entities:
