[Tagging] Advice & clarification of the railway tracks=* tag required.

I've copied the info to a new passenger_lines tag, since it would appear
that some people would prefer to use the tracks tag for a different purpose.

For those of you who don't have experience of train operations, I can
assure you that the number of tracks available for passenger operations
(and in particular, whether services can be readily timetabled to operate
with limited stops due to the absence of slow traffic on some lines) is
pretty useful info.

(Colin - it may be that usage=main covers the situation that I tagged as
traffic=fast, but I think usage=main also covers situations where
long-distance services dominate, but may have to share with freight, like
on much of the ECML. I'll try to elucidate in due course.)
