Hi all,
I've recently noticed a tenancy for people to tag railways as disused, even
when all traces have been gone for decades.
This is probably because railway=abandoned has been removed from the
rendering on openstreetmap.org (to try and stop people tagging abandoned

Just a reminder to all that railway=abandoned is still the correct tag for
a track that doesn't exist anymore.
railway=disused is only for tracks that are still in place and able to be
used (at least in theory).

Has anyone seen a site that renders historical or current railway lines so
I can direct people there to see their work rendered?
