[talk-au] How to tag "Rail Trails"?

Is a "rail trail" an abandoned railway where the track has been removed and
it's now a cycleway or walking track? I would use highway=cycleway foot=yes
or highway=footway bicycle=yes. The fact is that it is no longer a railway,
it is now a cycling/walking track.
