[Tagging] recent change to ranger_station proposal

The term "ranger station" seems to imply a multi-service staffed location.

A typical park has various facilities:

Parking kiosk
Entrance station
Visitor center
Nature centre
Backcountry Hut
Information Board

But they may be staffed at different times, and offer somewhat overlapping
services.

A camping permit might be obtainable at the Kiosk or the Visitor center for
example, thus:
vending:permit:camping=yes
vending:permit:fire=no

The only thing special about the ranger station might be the name "Ranger
Station" and
the matching symbol used to identify the building on the ground and on
official park maps.
