There's usage=main and usage=branch, but that is pretty crude. You might
use that to reproduce the old BR network map (before Railtrack/NR went and
made all the lines the same width).
The norm on four track railways is for two of the lines to be designated
the fast lines (or main lines on Great Western) and two to be designated
the slow lines (or relief lines on Great Western). The naming isn't as
clear if the pairs of lines diverge (eg the lines that bypass Redhill on
the way to Brighton), but the idea is basically the same.
