   At some point, historical railways are just like general historical 
items in OSM: after years of buildings are built, demolished, and roads 
rerouted, editing becomes impossible due to clutter.

   Try to explain to a newbie who is mapping a new park or shopping 
center that he must carefully work around and not disturb all those 
abandoned railway lines that no longer exist.
