IMO the Northern City line was a daft name,
Central London Railway - Central Line
Metropolitan Railway - Metropolitan Line
Metropolitan District Railway - District Line
Great Northern and City Railway - Northern City Line
Looks obvious to me.
About as obvious as the ELL being called the Metropolitan East Line or the
Waterloo and City being called the Central Waterloo Line. Calling
it the *northern* city just confused people as they assumed it was linked
to the northern line rather than being a completely seperate line.
