[Talk-transit] NaPTAN case study

I will not be adding route_ref tags, all route information is going on relations.

One aspect of NaPTAN which I have not investigated in any detail are Stop Place. I was hoping that we would have visualisation of the relations in OePNV-Karte but it does not parse the NaPTAN data. My impression is that many of these are peculiar in Nottingham: for instance the Nottingham Road / Vernon Road stop place includes two tram stops (http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/258878); and Nottingham Road / Haydn Road extends for around  1500 metres (http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/258691), with one stop in the group being a kilometre away from where I (as a bus user) would assume the stop place to be (i.e., by The Potters House church).

And in Clacton some signs do (in which case I add the tag) and some
don't. Those that do might not have kept up with changing routes
however so may be wrong. Adding routes is something I'll be doing at
some point, but won't be relying on the route numbers on the signs.
I did drive along behind the 137 one morning until it took a bus
only road...
