Status: In use

A tag to map former railways, where the rails have been removed but the route is still visible in some way. This should be used only for the rails, for other structures like stations use a lifecycle prefix.

If the rails are still in place use railway=disused instead.

If it is impossible to determine the former route of a railway you would not map it. If it can be guessed based on some remnants then you might try to map it, however this practice is disputed. See Demolished Railway.

You may indicate the type of the abandoned railway with a combination such as railway=abandoned + abandoned:railway=rail/light_rail/subway/tram
