Well, Redoak (node 151858163) is certainly a place=hamlet, not 
place=city.  Marsland Street (way 12700863) has many extraneous tags 
which are nonsense and can/should be removed:  access, area, bridge, 
cutting, embankment, junction, oneway and tunnel, if not more.  The 
relation KCS Train (2728587) is just silly and can be deleted in 
whole.  Ditto for City Of Kraft Louisiana (2728586).

I can't honestly decide if this is a real noob (no offense to noobs, 
I enjoy helping noobs...) or somebody bent on subtle but foolish 
vandalism.  If I tossed a coin enough times, it might land on the 
latter.  I think we can safely revert, but I'm glad you are waiting 
for an answer first.  Maybe we leave the Redoak node if we make it 
place=hamlet and it really exists.  Otherwise Themegameaster9000 
needs some gentle hand-holding, and if that doesn't work, some gentle 

Good catch, John.  (And nice to meet you in Sunnyvale last month). 
It's also a good thing the wider community has many, many eyes.
