After TfL confirmed that the London Euston to Watford Junction line would be getting a new name, readers supplied some choices.

The six London Overground lines will have their own identities by the end of 2024 and these are set to be based on representing the communities that live close to the tracks.

After the Watford Observer asked for readers’ best ideas, commenters gave a varied set of answers to say the least.

Suggestions included some options that sound like they might be sensible bookies favourites like the ‘Watford Local Line’, ‘The King Charles the Third Line', ‘Watford Express’, and ‘Watford London’.

However, TfL has put the focus on community engagement and “forgotten stories” in the information it has shared so far, so it's very possible it could be something more obscure.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: “There are so many Londoners, historic locations and forgotten stories from our city that need re-telling.

“Naming the lines will not only help educate visitors about what our amazing city and incredible history but will also make it easier for people who live, work or visit London to more easily navigate the city."

One suggestion TfL might not be so keen on is 'The Slow Line', with variations of that unflattering comparison to the Met Line being quite common among readers' ideas.

People also suggested sticking to recognisable names such as a return to calling it ‘The Watford DC Line’ (DC meaning Direct Current) or ‘The Harlequin Line’, which it was briefly rebranded as due to Harlesden and Queen’s Park being on the route.

Some also liked the name because they felt ‘The Harlequin Line’ fit with how they still refer to atria Watford.

“Then they change it 10 years later, but everyone just calls it by its old name,” joked one apparent proponent of the title.

Other choices to put to TfL that might not gain traction included ‘Euston to Potter World’, ‘Wat Eu looking at’, and ‘The Harry Potter Line’.

TfL is working with the Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm to work on themes ahead of public consultation on potential names.

The London Overground will remain as “the umbrella brand” and it will keep its orange logo.
