Is the London Overground now part of these APIs?

From Briantist

When I created https://twitter.com/OvergroundBot I had to use NR’s Darwin app?

Does this also mean that there is a full set of Station in the data? When I did this heatmap – http://tubedreams.london/london-heatmap/ – I had to scrape Wikipedia for the missing station locations.

Hi Briantist,

Yes, London Overground is included, here are some examples:

Stops with name, location and facilities:
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Line/london-overground/stoppoints

Route Sequence and geometry line string:
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Line/london-overground/route/sequence/outbound

Service arrival predictions:
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/london-overground/arrivals

There is full set of station data which includes lat/lon and facilities:
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/tube
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/dlr
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/tflrail
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/overground
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/river-bus
https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/mode/bus

You can also do a free-text style search e.g. for stops , e.g. “Bank”

https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/search/bank

Or limit the search by mode, e.g tube and bus

https://api.tfl.gov.uk/Stoppoint/search/bank?modes=tube,bus

I hope this helps.
