Network Rail isn't a network, it's the company (FSVO company) that owns and
operates Britain's rail infrastructure. Anything tagged network=Network Rail
should probably be network=National Rail.

There is a slight factual impropriety as London Overground is properly part
of the National Rail network; it's little different to a strongly branded
PTE-run franchise like Merseyrail. But how you resolve this without getting
ridiculously trainspottery I don't know.
