It's on the rail and tube services map which is the useful one these
days.


How widely is that map displayed?


Dunno but it's easy enough to download from the TfL web site.

The London Connections map has been displayed at relevant[1] stations
for ages (more than a decade at least).

But they don't appear to use that name any more.

[1] Going quite a long way outside London. It could even be 'across most
of the old Network Southeast'.

It's been around at least since the 80s I'm sure.

But how likely are casual users to do that? Is the line shown on normal
platform maps in tube stations?

AFAIK it's shown in the foyer of every tube station, along with the tube
map.

Quite possibly.

I was being conservative as a defence against the quibble-trolls.
