Somehow I come down on the side that railways have enough footprint on the
current world that
they belong in OSM proper, unlike say old buildings or former shops.
A abandoned railway slowly evolves from a mappable way, to a series of
other things, before disappearing
completely. But it leaves significant land use patterns on the waterways,
roadways and buildings it once ran near.
I know it's a messy dividing line. I see it as important context to
current day mapping.
