looks useful despite disclaimer on top

<osm fictional> finds other usefully
looking materials

In general, main technical issues are
exactly the same as with rendering
unmodified OSM data

I would not worry too much about
people thinking that railway map
is representing real railways

You would still need to attribute
OpenStreetMap
and attribution location may be a good
place to note that tracks are fictional

This data would be essentially fictional, not based on or derived from anything which is there now. I want to be able to create tiles zoomed in far enough to see individual rails and sleepers, with each rail as two separate rail edges.
