This isn't a solution just general advice on which tanks lines to grind to tier X. There is no "best tank line" to choose as it depends on your preferred play style. The big grind is at tiers VIII to X so it doesn't matter if you're already halfway up a certain line already.

Overall I would suggest these are some of the easiest, and most fun, lines to grind:
Arty/SPG - American (T92)
Heavy - American (T110E5) or Russian (IS-7)
Medium - Russian (Object 140/T-62A)
TD- German (Jag.Pz. E-100)

R4.2 update note from comments:
Just to let everyone know tier X lights are now - per today's 4.2 update notes: the "Top Shelf" achievement requirements have changed to include light tanks.

Arty/SPG Notes:
All Arty lines are the biggest grind (and least fun IMO) as you generally earn much less XP due to not spotting your own targets.
Most of the player base hates Arty (as it can 1 shot you from the other side of the map with little skill involved). Be prepared for the hate.

Heavy Notes:
Please don't camp in heavy tanks. Get to the front line and help your team win key areas of map control (you'll get more XP for your efforts and win more games this way).
The German E-100 line is a decent option if you're familiar with side-scraping tactics.

Medium Notes:
More skill involved to do well in. Maybe try the other classes first if you're inexperienced.
The British Centurion AX line is a decent option if you're familiar with hull-down tactics.

British or Soviet medium's? While the Cromwell is a brilliant tank, and the Comet and Centurions are good, the stock grind on both Centurion's is really tough (especially for less experienced players). I think the Russian mediums are easier to grind, and better tanks, where the big grind is at tiers VIII to X. If I had to chose one medium line to recommend it would be the Russian's as they are fairly easy to play and the tier IX (T-54) is very good and an easy grind (you'll need to fire some HEAT though). Both the T-62A and Object 140 are considered to be some of the best, and easiest, tier X tanks to play. I would suggest taking this route as you can unlock all three tier Russian tier X mediums (if you want to):

Tier V: T-34 (average)
Tier VI: A-43 (very good)
Tier VII: A-44 (average - rear mounted turret can be tricky)
Tier VIII: Object 416 (very good but plays more like a fast TD with rear mounted turret)
Tier IX: T-54 (very good but has lowish pen. for tier - use HEAT ammo if struggling to pen.)
Tier X: Object 140 or T-62A (both very good).

TD Notes:
They're generally considered to be the easiest class to play (along with Arty) so start here if you're inexperienced.
Other decent TD options are the Russian Object 268 line or American T110E4 line (if you're familiar with camo & spotting mechanics (required for the tier IV-IV TD's).
