The rail line which completely buckles under crowds from Twickenham is the Richmond, Twickenham, Clapham Junction to Waterloo as that is the route most want and I would have to go.
As you say Overground from Richmond to Willesden Junction is no problem. Neither is going west on South West Trains, so towards Reading rather than Waterloo.
