Has there ever been an explanation from Blizzard for why the Deeprun Tram runs east-west, when Ironforge & Stormwind are north-south of each other?

Not really. Nor a good explanation of what that body of water is. (Currently they're calling it an "underground lake". Really? Then where'd the boat come from?) I think the east-west path is what started the Ironforge-to-Darnassus rumors initially.

Or the guy who modelled the actual deeprun tram didn't realise it was going the wrong direction (because it is natural for Westerners to do things left to right because of how English is read) and later they couldn't be bothered to adjust the map file for the correct orientation.

I refer you to the Warcraft Less Traveled podcast and its most recent episode #45 – "Nessy and the Deeprun Tram."http://warcraftlesstraveled.com

The tinkers assigned to the project accidentally discombobulated the planet's magnetic field along the length of the tram. According to any compass taken into the tram, "north and south" point the same way "east and west" do at any other point in Azeroth.Goddamn gnomes.

some times you have to go up in order to go down, or east in order to go west - old Chinese proverb*may be it's easier to to build a tunnel that way due to hard minerals, lakes, balrogs or something.*as seen in a Chinese looking guy in a wolverine comic.
