I'd either have to re-convert the data, which isn't a lot of fun and
takes ~10 days, or write a script to convert them before upload.

But, we have 131 counties uploaded already and we have to fix those
anyway.  So, I think we should probably just either teach the renderer
about railway=abandoned, or bulk-change it in the DB.
