That's good.  Ummm, I forgot to mention it last time but from things that
have come up on here before I'd mention
that "historic," in OSM terms, doesn't mean "old" or "abandoned" or
"disused" but that it is of historic importance.
[Not for the wiki:the difference between "history" and "pre-history" are
whether or not there are recorded details (history
started with the invention of writing.)]

s/shifts/shafts :)
