i was thinking that it'd be pretty easy to set up a leaflet widget to
display an OSM basemap with OHM railroad data as a vector overlay,
but then it occurred to me that Russ is frequently mapping in areas
with no cell signal so that won't work.

but OsmAnd (which i think is what Russ uses for his offline maps) can
import layers sourced elsewhere, so there may be a path there.
