Mark, 99% of the times electrification=yes is used, it has railway= 
there as well. Can we assume any rendering would look for the railway= 
tag first ?  I mean to say that no one 'should' assume electrification= 
applies only to railways ?


would seem good to me.

By the way, never seen a grid like you describe, it goes across the road 
? And you drive over it ?
