clearly he's guilty until proven innocent, and the only way to prove that innocence is by being in the global spotlight for weeks or months as he sues me, a billionaire who is beloved by thousands of gross toxic dorks that will ruin the lives of anyone who opposes me.

Well, to be fair, as long as you have another subway line running the other way running somewhat close to it, and some method of transferring trains from one tunnel to the other at each end, could still work. Still not the best solution, mind you, but theoretically fixable. As I understand it, most actual subway systems tend to run somewhat like this anyways, at least the smaller ones I have personally been on. Can't speak for the larger, more complex ones.

LRTs have an engine on both ends so they can go back and forth on the same track easily, instead of doing some convoluted hyperloop u turn

Which is fine for systems where you can ensure you will never have more than one train in the same block at the same time, or two trains approaching each other without a passing track/siding. At least in the (small) metro system in my town, they just have one track on each side of the platforms, one for one direction and one for the opposite. Turnaround loop at each end of the line. Kind of wish they would let people ride during the turnaround, but they make everyone get off of the trains. I guess it has to do with a noise thing? It is pretty noisy from what echoes out of the tunnel.
