  CULG - Northern Line
Originally the line was to consist of a route from Charing Cross to Hampstead with a branch to Archway, all in tube, but Yerkes insisted on further extending the western branch under Hampstead Heath to the empty land of Golders Green, where it would surface.
The line from Finchley to Edgware had been closed to ease the work of doubling and electrification; power rails were laid to Mill Hill East to allow the barracks to be served, but no more work on the extensions was done.
In the specific case of the Northern Line, the closed stations at South Kentish Town and City Road were used for this purpose, as was Highgate even before it opened (until the surface access was ready, some trains stopped there to serve shelterers).

The Northern Line is a deep-level tube line of the London Underground, coloured fl on the Tube map.
The single track LNER line to Edgware was electrified as far as Mill Hill East in 1941 to serve the barracks there, thus forming the Northern Line as it is today.
All Northern Line trains consist of London Underground 1995 Stock and are in the distinctive Underground livery of red, white and blue.

  Northern City Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It should not be confused with the City branch of the Northern Line, nor with the North London Line.
The line was formerly part of London Underground, and during its history has been part of both the Metropolitan and Northern Lines, although it is connected to neither.
In 1970 the line was renamed Northern Line (Highbury Branch).

 Northern Line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northern Line is a deep-level tube line of the London Underground, coloured fl on the Tube map.
After nationalisation in 1933 the Great Northern and City Railway, which ran from Moorgate to Finsbury Park, became part of the Underground as the Northern City Line; it was operated as part of the Northern Line, though it was never connected to it.
Extending the Northern line from Kennington, this concievably could also be the development that results in the Northern line splitting into two separate lines, though this would also have as a prequisite the much-maligned redevelopment of Camden Town to improve interchange capcity.

 Northern Line
During the 1920s connections were built so that the two lines joined at Camden Town and Kennington[?], and the lines were extended to Morden[?] in the south and Edgware[?] in the north.
The resulting line became known as the Morden-Edgware Line, and was eventually named the Northern Line in 1937.
In the 1930s an ambitious plan (the "Northern Heights") was hatched to link the Highgate branch and the Northern City Line (which ran from Moorgate[?] to Finsbury Park) to existing suburban railways and extend branches to High Barnet[?], Alexandra Palace[?] and Bushey Heath.

The line, renamed the Northern line in 1937, was further extended between Archway and East Finchley in 1939, over existing suburban railway tracks to High Barnet in 1940, and to Mill Hill East in 1941.
Plans to modernise the Northern line, which include new trains and a state-of-the-art signalling system, took a significant step forward in November 1994 with the announcement of a multi-million pound Private Finance Initiative, with the then Anglo-French company, GEC-Alsthom (now Alstom) to lease 106 new trains.

 Nevada Northern Ore Line Stations and Operations
Ore was transported by the Nevada Northern Railway during this period, and Veteran ore was the first ore concentrated at the McGill concentrator.
The ore line departed the main line that headed north to Shafter and Cobre at Hiline, and from Hiline to the concentrator (Mill) was the Mill Branch.
The ore line made a gentle climb on the Hiline past the Lavon siding and the wye at Adverse to the mill and smelter complex on the east side of McGill.

 GN History
The Great Northern Railway was created in September 1889 from several predecessor railroads in Minnesota and eventually stretched from Lake Superior at Duluth and Minneapolis/St. Paul west through North Dakota, Montana and Northern Idaho to Washington State at Everett and Seattle.
The line was the culmination of one man's dream, James Jerome Hill, the "Empire Builder" so-called because of his ability to create prosperous business where none previously existed.
The line serving southern Oregon and northern California is connected with the balance of Great Northern's system by trackage rights over lines of other companies, to form a north and south through route on the Pacific Coast and between the Northwest and California.

The Northern Line one is called CELIA which, as well as being the name of the nice lady who spoke them, actually stands for "Complete Electronic Line Information Announcer"; some folk have come up with alternatives, the politest being "Creates Excellent Line Information Ambience".
Subsequently, the line was extended to Kennington, a new alignment with southbound platform built, and the loop line abandoned; the latter was plugged with concrete, partially filled with rubble, and during World War II was flooded.
Both Northern Line platforms at Embankment had wartime-installed floodgates at their north ends, despite the river being at the south ends; presumably the station tubes themselves could, if hit by a bomb, provide a path for the river to enter the system.

 Ogden Rails, Oregon Short Line & Utah Northern
With growing traffic on the new line between Omaha and Portland, and with the increasing traffic moving north from Pocatello to the Montana mines, the narrow-gauge Utah and Northern north of Pocatello was hard pressed to keep up, due to the delay and cost caused by the change of track gauge at Pocatello.
The construction of the new standard-gauge line also included an 8.58-mile Cache Valley connection between the former Utah and Northern narrow-gauge line at Mendon and a station on the new line to be called Cache Junction.
The remaining 15-mile section of the old narrow-gauge main line north from Preston to the connection with the new line at Oxford, Idaho, was abandoned upon completion of the standard-gauge line.

 ATS
The Northern Heights improvements were to suffer from funding as the Central Line was to be given more attention due to the tubes being used to manufacture munitions for the war.
The Northern Line was extended to East Finchley and also up to High Barnet with a single track electrified to Mill Hill East for the barracks near by.
This left the line to be used as a path, a dumping ground, a playground and also a no-go area.

This led to demands from London Underground that Tube Lines, the Bechtel-Amey consortium, sack Alstom, the engineering company which owns and maintains the Northern line trains.
