|Tools for this tag|
A tag for a decommissioned(in some parts of the world called railcar, freight car, coach, wagon or waggon) which has become a tourist attraction and generally remains in one place. The rail car can be any type of rolling stock, but not a locomotive.
This can also be used for anything that is even remotely rail-bound, like experimental rocket-sleds, monorail cars etc that are set on a pedestal.
For locomotives, use historic=locomotive
How to Map
Place a node at the location of the railway car or draw an area for the outline and use historic=railway_car. You can also name it with name=*. If the railway car is a tourist attraction, then add tourism=attraction.
Some railway cars are located in a building, draw a area as a separate line with building=*. Set the railway car separately as point or area in the building. Sometimes, a railway car is uses as a builing. You can use building=* on trains, but only if it is truly stationary (e.g. it has fixed plumbing and power lines connected to it)
