I don't understand why you would use railway:forward=* and
railway:lanes:forward=*. Aren't those two redundant?

Also, why train and not tram?

I like railway:lanes:forward/backward=* because sometimes you can have
rails on the street which are not used by anything, so using tram/train
doesn't make sense. But if you say tram:lanes:forward/backward=* than that
implies that there are rails there, so no other tags are needed anymore.
