This tag is used on relations which map the route of a railway line. These relations gather rail infrastructure (track) elements, often with the same name=*, railway=*, usage=* and owner=* / operator=* tags.

Train services which run along the line (and connecting lines) are tagged separately using route=train.

See Railways and Train routes.

Note: do not use a railway=rail tag on this relation as this will confuse renderers.
