Apologies, I meant relation.

One or more running lines are grouped together in to a route - it's
entirely possible for lines that run parallel (e.g. the line from Watford
Junction - Camden Junction runs parallel to the line from Rugby to Euston)
to be in completely separate routes, or for a line to change from one route
to another mid-way.

I'll mull over how to model a change between line names.

Why include the word "code" in the tag name for CRS (and nr_route_code)

TIPLOC stands for Timing Point LOcation Code, so adding 'code' to the end
is technically unnecessary.  STANOX stands for Station Number, so isn't a
code per se.

However, for clarity, I'm happy to make them tiploc_code, stanox_code and
crs_code, or perhaps prefix them with something else.
