    We've had Pallion and Gallions Reach so the NR thing doesn't seem to matter.

    High Barnet. The other extreme of the Northern Line.

    Didn't realise there was a rule about NR stations. Still, Pallion is on NR tracks...

    It's funny how people are worried about using TfL stations when we've just had a preserved railway one. And it didn't even exist when the line was part of the national network!
