Over the past few years in the UK I've been maintaining/checking the

I've the changed the few that were mapped as areas to nodes & swapped
the areas to railway=landuse. It allows accurate positioning of the label.
After a discussion on Talk-GB I've also amended all railway=halt to
To decide on size is far too arbitrary/subjective for OSM . What makes
on "small"? OSM requires objective tags to describe objects. I've added
request_stop=yes to those that only have stopping trains if flagged down
by a passenger, & looking to add more platform=* tags. Both help to
accurately describe stations.
