Hi Daniel,

> Nice to see another unification effort, but I have a specific question: we have an interchange station in Warsaw called "Świętokrzyska". I marked it as one station some time ago in the middle of lines crossing.

To me, this is a better way of tagging: there is a noticeable transfer time between lines on this station, and platforms are different, so mapping the station as two shows that better. Of course, you can leave it a single station, but in this case, some routers might think there is virtually no time needed to change lines.

(Actually it was me who made this edit under Ira's account, while I was showing how to prepare subway stations.)

The route https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/4232533 the stop_position and the station for Świętokrzyska, and the latter is in the incorrect position. The same for https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/4232534 .
