railway=disused is a very old and established tag. All data consumers
who want to do something (e.g. rendering) with disused railway tracks,
use this tag. disused:railway=rail/narrow_gauge/tram/… is used for
further distinction because it is a huge difference if you have a
disused miniature railway or a disused monorail.

Stations, halts and other disused railway nodes are not tagged using
disused=railway because this tag is defined as a disused railway track
(a track cannot be a point feature, it's always a line feature).

Best regards

Michael
