I have been adding the three letter short code as the ref tag when I have been editing around stations. e.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/9779990
I have also been adding that tag tfl_travelzone, in the hope that at some point there will be a map showing the travel map zone in a geographic layout.
