The Anonymous Widower

What Will The Northern Line Extension TBMs Be Called?

This article in Global Rail News is entitled Northern Line TBMs Complete.

So all that is needed now is to find two suitable female names for the machines.

As the extension goes to Battersea, surely they should be given the names of famous dogs.

How about?

  • Beauty – The world’s first rescue dog – Awarded the Dickin Medal in 1945.
  • Judy – A pointer, who helped keep morale high in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp – Awarded the Dickin Medal in 1946.
  • Sasha – A labrador, who died with her handler in Afghanistan – Awarded the Dickin Medal in 2014.
  • Susan – The queen’s first corgi.

There must be quite a few others.
