The London Underground was originally designed to allow through
running from the mainline railways to stations more convenient for
central London than the mainline termini, which were very much on the
outskirts of the London of the time. There are several connections
between the two systems, and the "suburbs" end of several Underground
routes is reached over main line track, so Underground drivers on such
routes have to know two sets of operating rules, Underground rules and
national rules.
