|Tools for this tag|
The tag railway:preserved=yes is used for a railway running historic trains, usually a tourist attraction. They are usually privately owned, preserved and run for railway heritage and/or profit, not necessarily providing a meaningful public transportation service. Also known as a Heritage railway. See .
The tag is suggested instead of railway=preserved as running historic trains is not a primary characteristic, and many various railway types (from railway=rail through railway=tram to railway=miniature) may be preserved. Using this key allows these different types of preserved railway to be distinguished.
