Heh, so it does. Nodes and areas certainly seem legitimate. I'm a bit
iffy about using ways to mean "crane on rails" as I think you can have
several cranes sharing the same set of rails, and I think it would be
legitimate to describe the rails and the crane (in some indicative
central position) separately.

I've updated to include area in the main text, and left the way icon
there as well.
