I fully agree, for example graded terrain or clear remain of track ballast and sleepers
are far less likely to be removed in a countryside.
Though sometimes it will be completely gone also in a countryside.

No, we should delete such segments (except cases where people are very likely to believe
that this section still exist due to a very recent removal).
