[Talk-GB] Importing NaPTAN Data [Thread 2]

Forgive me if this is silly question/statement, but the adj/alt names etc are in the naptan dataset. Wouldn’t it be better to have the link made between the stop in OSM and the record in naptan (using the codes prior mentioned).
My thinking is data consumers could link and retrieve values using that. Merging the extra data values again might potentially develop discrepancies over time.

I’d think the atco code is unique and (hopefully) not reused, but the alt names etc could be modified over time.

Hope that helps.

Pretty much the perfect response, thank you!

Good point about alternate names, will add support for those to my script now (maybe unnecessary for my area, but I'd like to share it in future). I see that many of the English alternate names are nearby landmarks or features (e.g. "The Crossroads"). Should I include these too as `loc_name` or similar (open question to all)?
