This font is actually a clone of New Johnston, which was created in 1979 by Eiichi Kono making it only 35 years old. One can tell because of certain differences between New Johnston and the original, check the "1", ":" and ";" glyphs in particular.

The typeface is certainly not public domain, but typeface copyright is a strange area and it seems you can copy glyph designs without repercussion.

I do appreciate that there is a freely available version of New Johnston because I like some of the improvements made.

For an open-source version of Johnston's original Underground typeface look to Railway
