After playing fo a while, one thing I don't really see the added value of is the conversion of M5 to T3. What was the reason of converting it? Realistically looking, you lose cross-platform changeover and have to go downstairs at Transferium, so it doesn't even seem logical to me as it's not even connected to the rest of the tram network.
The main reason was simple; to have a line for the Citylink tram to run on. That tram is a bit too large for line T1 or T2, as the concept of Citylink trams (in most cities where Citylink type trams run) is not for short distances with frequent stops, but for regional services. Often with a city center tram part (shared with city trams) and a (converted) railway part.

A few examples;
  • The Hague - Zoetermeer (the tram is officially called "Regiocitadis", but is follows the classical Citylink concept)
  • Saarbrücken - Sarreguemines
  • Alicante - Benidorm
  • Kassel - Hofgeismar-Hümm (same tram type as in The Hague)
I did have an alternative idea for the Citylink tram in Rijndam; Garenmarkt (on a new track nr3) to Statenpolder, and then a new higher speed section (100 km/h) with few stops, towards Denia, connecting to the existing line at Westwoud.
But as the network was already too big for some users, and even I was starting to get lower performance in some area's, I did not want to add several kilometers of new scenery to the network.

(Perhaps if I sacrifice parts of the RijndamRail railwaylines (Centraal Station - Rijndam Zuid and CGL - Noordvliet)? And then build that as a separate downloadable "Rijndam 2022". Just an idea....)

I'd like to see that. Or we can have an alternative timeline like Simvliet did but routes and RoWs changed instead of the scenery of the stations. ;)

Also maybe make Simvlet 2013 & 2017 as separate downloads

Simvliet is made by Michiel, so I can't do anything with that.
(Personally, the track layout at Stadionweg in Simvliet 2017, when the underpass was not build yet and SDW5 was a dead-end track, only reachable from the Araplein branch, was my favorite :D )

Don't forget the trams... ;)

And a separated file will display only the metro compositions.

Why not? :idea:

Why do I have an idea for a new route

It makes sense in that context yeah. Perhaps I've got a better idea, as you mentioned RSR, it might be a cool idea to leave Transferium - Denia as a metro line alsongside the Rijndam Zuid branch as a Citylink line, so you get the mixed operations just like in RSR!

Why there's no locomotive in Molenwijk in Rijndam 2018?

Because it spawns elsewhere on the map (guessing you mean the NS2200).
