Silverlink is a regional franchise in the British railway system, with routes in north London and from London to Northampton. Silverlink is owned by National Express Group plc.

The company is divided into two main brands. The 'Silverlink Metro' brand is used for inner-suburban services around London. The 'Silverlink County' brand is used for longer distance and outer-suburban services.

Silverlink Metro

The Silverlink Metro service has routes on several lines:

The Metro services are operated by Class 313 dual-voltage electrical multiple units on the electrified routes, and Class 150 Sprinter diesel multiple units on the non-electrified routes. Additionally, three Class 508/3 electric units are used exclusively on the Euston-Watford Junction service. The Sprinters replaced the elderly Class 117 and Class 121 units in 2000.

County services to Northampton are operated by Class 321/4 electrical multiple units introduced in 1989. They will shortly be joined by new Class 350/1 Desiro units built by Siemens AG.

Services on the St Albans Branch Line are operated by Class 313 electric units, whilst the Marston Vale Line uses Class 150 diesel units.
