I would agree with moving the Old Town Station to Union Station, as it would provide a better connection to other forms of transit, and have a better walkshed.

I would argue against adding too many stations though. Any underground station costs a fortune, and would only increase the time it takes for trains to get through downtown. As is, the spacing shown already puts you within 6 blocks of any point on the transit mall. That said, I could see one additional station between Pioneer Courthouse Sq and Goose Hollow on the red/blue branch.
