Tag values

Tag values usually are lowercase without spaces. So crane:type=Portal crane should not be used. Instead crane:type=portal_crane is an OSM compliant tagging. The same for crane:mobile=Rail should be crane:mobile=rail. If noone vetos I will change that. --WanMil 09:41, 25 September 2012 (BST)

Mapping of crane rails

How should we tag the rail of the cranes? For example, ways http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/98483620 and http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/98483754 currently have no tags, and they seem to represent rails for cranes. Zstadler (talk) 14:27, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

Revisiting this issue after a few years... At the time I invented a man_made=rail tag for these, but that wasn't liked by the person who mapped that industrial complex and after some discussion then the original (but in my opinion still wrong) railway=rail tags were restored, and it still has railway=rail tags on there today http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/51.1621/3.7987
We really need something for this, it's displayed and seen as proper railway tracks now (even more prominently as the actual railway tracks going through that complex) and I don't think that should happen... --Eimai (talk) 08:10, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
I totally agree with the above. I added some gantry cranes at DeltaPort e.g. (Way: 503678145) http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/123045975#map=16/49.0243/-123.1542&layers=T with the tags "man_made:crane" and "type:gantry_rail". However, they do not display on OSM, and it would be decent if they would with a noticeably weighted line style and colour, different from rail lines. It would also be preferable if the two rails were combined on the same way, if possible.
I checked in the big ports of Longbeach and Singapore, and there does not seem to be any acceptable solution there.
