Praha hl n - path for southbound trains?

#1
I´m just a bit curious, in the Bratislava - Praha route, which ís the correct way for trains going from Praha towards Brno/Bratislava? I have tried departing to the south from Praha hl n, but the speed limits are very low for a long time.

It is much quicker to depart to the north, but there are only 1 track north of the central station! Is this really correct in real life? It looks like a capacity nightmare...

In 2008, the "New Connection" was built, it includes new 2-track routes:
Praha hl.n. (Main Station) - branch Balabenka - Praha-Vysočany (Vysočany station)
Praha hl.n. (Main Station) - Praha-Libeň (Libeň Station)
branch Balabenka - branch Rokytka (in direction Praha-Holešovice)
Praha Masarykovo n. (Masaryk Station) - branch Sluncová - Praha-Libeň (Libeň Station)
branch Sluncová - branch Balabenka

In the Bratislava - Praha route the situation before 2008 is built. In this route, you can also go from Praha hl.n. to Praha-Libeň via "Hrabovka" - a link between Main Station and Masaryk Station.

Now, the trains go from Praha hl.n. to Praha-Libeň and then in direction Kolín, Pardubice...

After some studies, it turns out that the line was upgraded to four tracks in order to handle more trains. Is this going to get inplanted in the MSTS route? :)
Yes, you can find it in project "Trat 321" here.
