They should just split the lines by color. There will effectively be 6 lines after the extensions are finished. Green-yellow, blue-orange, red-purple.

That the lines each have their own color is something that was introduced in the 1980s iirc. So it's not like it's been this way forever. Changing it to be one color per branch pair (i.e. what Arnorian proposed) would make some sense. Would make the map of the entire rail system a mess tho.

If a good designer does it it doesn't have to be a mess. Here is that color scheme on the map of the present network by Jug Cerović:

Commuter trains are not going into the Citybanan.

Stockholm's Citybanan commuter line shut down 'until further notice'

Stockholm's new Citybanan commuter train line was closed on Tuesday afternoon, with no indication of when the trains would be able to start running again[...]






'Brilliant'...

Det kostar 16,8 miljarder kronor att bygga Citybanan. Investeringen finansieras av staten genom Trafikverket, Stockholms stad, Stockholms läns landsting samt Mälardals- och Östgötaregionerna (prisnivå 2007-01). Vi håller budgeten (juni 2017).
= 16.8 billion SEK, which is approximately 160- 170 million Euros.

The problem?

Quote:
"On the commuter trains, we have almost 300,000 passengers per day, so it will affect many of them, and the commuter trains must run alongside regional train traffic. So it will be messy on this stretch," said Hoffmann.
Stockholm's transport commissioner, Kristoffer Tamson, argued that the Transport Administration should be better able to anticipate and fix technical problems, and should not be forced to shut down the Citybanan line on short notice for an indefinite period.
"I am really angry, and see it as my task to defend the interests of Stockholmers and commuters when such things happen," he told the TT newswire.

SL seem to say it'll be running tomorrow at 4:00 if I am correct? What a mess. Signalling failure.

Seems it is up and running since this morning. So whatever they thought would fix it did in fact fix it.

My daughter wanted to take the Pendel home from preschool yesterday, so we got to go take a train on the "wrong" platform at Stockholm Södra and go non-stop to Älvsjö But then we had to wait 10 minutes for the bus home

This was according to contingency plans though, a half-year trial period to hopefully get any kinks out of the system, and the Centralen-Karlberg regional train segment as a fallback in case of trouble on the City line segment. That would apply even when Karlberg is shut down. Trains going Centralen-Solna/Sundbyberg with no intermediate stop wouldn't be any disaster. It's not as if it is hard to get from Odenplan to Stockholm C.

That said there are some S-bana options inside Stockholm, building train line(s) with shorter distance between stops than the Pendeltåg norm.
