A user in GB has been editing railway lines by adding tracks=4 even
though each individual track has been mapped:
From the railway page of the wiki:
"When modeling multi-track parallel railway lines in close proximity
they can either be modeled as a single way with tracks=*, or as a number
of parallel ways."
"The tracks=* tag should be used to record the number of tracks with a
default value of 1 being assumed where this is not supplied. "
In the example he's tagged each way with tracks=4. Going on what the
wiki says this implies there are a total of 16 tracks on the ground.
This seems incorrect tagging to me.
I've contacted him directly & received a reply but he appears to think
his way is correct & the wiki wrong, so I'm posting here for advice &
