The tag train=yes/no is used to specify whether trains stop at a feature such as a train station or platform. This tag is mainly used for trains which are not a tram=*, subway=* or monorail=* train. It may overlap with light_rail=* in some cases.

This tag was approved for use with public_transport=stop_position only, when proposed at Proposed_features/Public_Transport, however it has also been used with other railway=* and public_transport=* feature tags.

How to Map

  • Add the tag train=yes to a feature such as a public_transport=stop_position or railway=platform to specify that trains stop at this feature. This is mainly useful when the same node is shared by a railway=* with a train and a highway=* with a bus, or by two railway=* types such as trams and light_rail.
  • Add the tag train=no to a feature when trains do not stop there, even though they might otherwise be expected to.

Some mappers add this tag to public_transport=platform and public_transport=station features, instead of adding the more common tags railway=platform and railway=station, however this tagging was not approved as part of the proposal and is not widely supported by database users.

  • Rarely, train=yes/no/private/permissive has been used to specify legal access restrictions.
