None of the LO services currently have official names, though of course
locals might continue to use the historical names (DC Line, etc). The
problem with some of the old geographic names is that multiple modern
routes share some lines.


I hope the Chingford Line and the Enfield Town/Cheshunt line get
different names and colours on the map, because the latter calls at
London Fields and Cambridge Heath and the former doesn't.

I like Ermine Line for the Cheshunt line, because Liverpool Street,
Stoke Newington, Bruce Grove, Edmonton Green and Theobalds Grove are all
on the Roman road Ermine Street. But they'll probably go for George
Floyd line instead.


Whatever the names, I don't think they can get new colours. There just
aren't enough distinct shades available. I wonder if they could use
differently shaped dashed orange lines?
