Hey, just trying to help you along in the design process by offering some constructive criticism. Of course, your personal preferences are what determines the overall design at the end of the day

Looks pretty well designed. Is it a city or metro of 2,500,000? If it's a metro area, then the system seems very large for that population. Perhaps it is light metro like the Vancouver Skytrain? I also wonder what the frequency would be on the red, blue, and orange lines seeing as they're interlined through the CBD. The CBD section would need to be exceptionally busy for the frequency to still be decent on the rest of the lines.

It's also interesting to see there's both express and local service. That's a pretty complex system for a city that size. Does this mean there are quad tracks?

The map shows a system that would in many ways be great, but it has one inherent weakness: all the interlining. That'll make delays on one line propagate to the other lines and make delays harder to work away. That depends also on the frequency of the service, but given how expensive metros are to build I'm guessing the trains would run at 5 minutes headway per line at rush hour (or better)? that doesn't leave much time between trains on the interlined sections to help keep delays at bay.

New tunnels through the downtown area would be needed as passenger numbers increase, but with some planning that'd be sketched in from the start and make an even better coverage of that area possible.

Interlining indeed is a weak part, especially with local/express configurations on the individual branches in place. Of course, we do not know the track schematics behing this fantasy system. For all we know, the core sections in the downtown area consist of four track tunnels or maybe even six track tunnels...

The city itself is 2,500,000 the metro would be more about 10 million.

Also, Yes, ther CBD would be VERY busy, (around the size of lower Manhattan), but also, many of the outer suburban lines have mostly limited access stations only open during rush hours (6:00-9:00, 17:00-20:00).

Lastly, in the areas where there are at least 3 lines (the CBD), yes, there Are quad tracks, entering mega stations with multiple platforms)

The central area consists of 4 tracks, also, overall, the metro, and stations would be something similar to that of the DC metro (which combines lines).

Some lines on my Mushroom Kingdom system share tracks, but most segments are independent. Most of Line 3 is modeled after the DC Metro and has stations that look very similar (i.e. vaulted ceilings, station signage, etc).

Here's my first try at a proper map, It's of a my idea for a tram network in the border town of Narva, Estonia with a population of 65 thousand.
The network consists of 3 lines, one of which is a tram-train line to neighbouring resort town of Narva-Jűesuu.
1. The Green line (Rahu-Kreenholmi) runs every 15min
2. The Red line (Kangelaste-Kreenholmi) runs every 30min
3. The Blue line (Narva-Jűesuu-Raudteejaam/Train station) runs every 30min
