All the source files for icons on the standard layer (and other visual 
patterns) can be found here:


(shields for the different kinds of roads are inside the subfolder 

The easiest thing to view them locally would be to install Git and clone 
this repository. However notice, that we're in a process of transition 
from PNG icons to pixel-aligned SVG icons. While the PNGs are exactly 
what you see on the map, the SVGs are the source for transforming them 
into real raster files (PNG probably), but I don't know how to do this 
manually or where to find them in a transformed version.

The man behind PNG->SVG transition is nebulon42 ( 
https://github.com/nebulon42 ), so you can contact him and ask about 

As far as I know there's no documentation for what gets displayed and 
you have to look mainly at the MSS files to find out.

Hope that helps.
