Almost - these 3 lines are serviced by Tubelines so is not part of the 
Metronet situation.

Metronet service the following deep level (Tube) lines :
  Bakerloo, Central, Victoria, and Waterloo & City lines (BCV)
and the following sub surface lines :
Circle, District, Metropolitan, Hammersmith & City and East London lines
