Please note that I am not related to the team maintaining the slippymap
stylesheet. Also, this post should go to dev or mapnik-user list.
In the actual stylesheet, If an element is tagged as
amenity=bus_station, its name is rendered light blue, and if an
element is tagged railway=station, its name is rendered 'railway' blue.
These are two separate rules that apply successively on the same element
(on distinct layers), hence the two labels.
To avoid that, the stylesheet rules should be changed to something like:
1. if an element is tagged as amenity=bus_station AND NOT
railway=station, its name is rendered light blue,
2. if an element is tagged as railway=station AND NOT
amenity=bus_station, its name is rendered 'railway' blue,
and a new rule:
3. if an element is tagged as railway=station AND amenity=bus_station,
its name is rendered 'choose your nuance here' blue.
I understand the 'won't fix' fairly well, because this would be a lot of
rules to add in the stylesheet to cope with all possible double-tagging
(and triple, quadruple, ...), not only for buses and train. Hard to find
a general way to deal with that, and to take the decision which tag
takes the precedence.
Where the actual stylesheet is well done, is that the railway station
label is displaced 10 pixels upward, and the bus station label 9 pixels
downward, so we can see both and know that there is both a bus and a
railway station there.
It seems that mapnik does not allow such displacements for icons
(pointsymbolizer) though. However, the bus_station icon is specified
with allow_overlap="false" , I'm not sure what it would look likes
