Looking at OPNVKarte layer I see that these two relations are shown.
Looking at the tagging it appears that both relations are type=route,
route=train, status=abandoned; I believe this tagging is incorrect.
Reading wiki about routes
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:route and the general
principal that OSM only shows the present I think that route=train is
wrong and should be deleted.
Reading wiki about Railways https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Railways
railway=abandoned may be correct for parts of those routes - although
not for those parts which are now submerged in the Solway Firth and
Kielder Water - they are no longer visible.
I intend to delete the route=train tag from those relations, if there is
a consensus on a replacement tag I will add that.
