I see the overbridge outside Camden Road station has been painted in Eastern Region blue with white lettering, which seems odd seeing as it was a Midland Region line.
Also, the O in Road has been made to look like the symbol for an Off switch:

It's now part of Anglia Network Rail region (or is that route?) - so that might explain the paint scheme, but it's more likely completely accidental...

I don't think that has any relevance to the radio, and is just a general sign for the promotion of the area/market

Camden Road is not served by any Anglia services, and afaik never has been.

My (quite old) Quail track diagram has the entire NLL, including the platforms at Richmond, as part of the East Anglian Zone for Network Rail purposes, although it's always been operated by London Midland sectors or companies.

Not as odd as thinking the colour used by a defunct BR region for station signs has any relevance today to Network Rails civil engineers.

Much more interesting is the very large sign at the top of the station building declaring the station to be Camden Town. The station is rather interesting as it may well be one of the last representatives of the North London Railway stations with their huge capacity for passengers (mostly blocked off now at Camden Road) and large numbers of steps!

This is pure pedantry, and not directly related to the matter at hand (or "Anglia" designation)....but back in 1999-2002 (I think it was...) at least some of the Anglia Railways "London Crosslink" services between East Anglia and Basingstoke did stop there.

It's just nice to see that after (pre-Overground) years of neglect, some paint is being applied at all!
