Will We Get Less Diesel Locomotives On The Overground?

I have been reading Network Rail’s Anglia Route Study.

One thing they say will be done is this.

Electrification of the Gospel Oak to Barking  Line and the Thameshaven freight branch.

So if they electrify toThameshaven or London Gateway, as its owners call it, will they also electrify from the Great Eastern Main Line to Felixstowe?

But whatever happens an electrified GOBlin and the ability to take electric locomotives into London Gateway, will surely cut the number of smelly and smoky diesel locomotives passing through the residential areas of North London.

Electrification of the Felixstowe branch would get rid of a few more.

The question has to be asked if we have enough electric freight locomotives.
