[talk-au] Berry Train Station

According to the wiki, railway=station areas start at the entrance signal
from the perspective of the train, not the passenger, so based on that, the
area would enlarge.

However I wouldn't have though this entrance signal has any correlation to
the cadastral parcels, which is what it seems you're proposing? Do you have
any knowledge that indicates it does? I thought the parcels which make up
the rail corridor were arbitrary and internal boundaries don't represent
anything.

PS. If you're planning on importing cadastre, I'd appreciate a few dot
points on your plan, so the community has some visibility.
