Present Usage of The Lines Involved
The lines involved provide significant orbital passenger services and important freight routes, as well as other movements.
The most frequent passenger services, 4 trains per hour (tph) in each direction during the working week, are on the NLL. The WLL and the GoBLin basically have 2 tph each. There are some additional trains on all these lines during peak hours. The SLL has 2 tph. The ELL is currently closed, pending construction of northern and southern extensions; it formerly had about 5 tph.
Freight services include those having destinations on or near to the lines, as well as cross-country freight movements not originating or terminating in London, for which presently these lines are the most viable route.

Famous quotes containing the words involved, lines, present and/or usage:
“The simple opposition between the people and big business has disappeared because the people themselves have become so deeply involved in big business.”
—Walter Lippmann (18891974)
“When the rose reigns, and locks with ointments shine,
Let rigid Cato read these lines of mine.”
—Robert Herrick (15911674)
“If the technology cannot shoulder the entire burden of strategic change, it nevertheless can set into motion a series of dynamics that present an important challenge to imperative control and the industrial division of labor. The more blurred the distinction between what workers know and what managers know, the more fragile and pointless any traditional relationships of domination and subordination between them will become.”
—Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)
“Pythagoras, Locke, Socratesbut pages
Might be filled up, as vainly as before,
With the sad usage of all sorts of sages,
Who in his life-time, each was deemed a bore!
The loftiest minds outrun their tardy ages.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
