Just have a look on an example:
> For separate tracks I found two possibilities 'tramway' and
> 'railway=tram' - when to use which?
Railway=tram worked fine in my case.
> If the railway direct on the street I saw that you just make a track
> 'highway' and 'railway'
This also works fine (e.g. highway=secondary, railway=tram)
> - but how do I add the name of the lines that
> actually drive on that tracks?
For that just add every highway with railway=tram and every
railway=tram way to a route relation like it is also done in the above
operator=Essener Verkehrs AG
The results is very nicely mapped on German ÖPNV-Karte:
It is a good idea to document it on the wiki like it is done here:
From there you get also the following link to check your relation:
