Good question.  I don't think I've ever seen any actual tagging of
trolleybus routes on the map.

trolley_wire=yes <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:trolley_wire%3Dyes>,
which is probably marginally preferable to trolley_wire=installed, as it
mirrors other *=yes tags.

Either way, we should probably document it on the wiki so that it's a little
more findable!
