[Had to check your route there - Queen's Park/Willesden Junction/Richmond/Clapham Junction/West Brompton seems about the only way.]

Does Shepherd's Bush have direct to Highbury and Islington? In reality I know it does, but on the map?

Oh, I suppose it does - it depends on whether you regard the line from Shepherd's Bush as joining the North London Line at Willesden Junction. It's a little unclear from the map but if that's what it does in reality then I'll accept that that's an invalid move.
