Rail network divided by area of country


A train route is a relation that describes the route of a train (usually, in regular passenger service). Its members include the stations/stops/platforms served by the train (where it stops to pick up or drop off passengers) as well as the railways (ways also part of railway routes) on which the train travels. A train route relation can be described as "higher level," implying a "lower level" infrastructure of rail segments underlying the train route (see route=railway).

How to tag a train relation

Main article: Railway
Key Example values Comment
type route (required)
route train (required)
public_transport:version 1 / 2 (required)
name <vehicle type> <reference number>: <initial stop> => <terminal stop> Prose description of route variant. <Vehicle type> should be identical to route=*. Example: Bus 201: Uitikon Waldegg, Bahnhof => Uitikon, Wängi (recommended)
network local / regional network Name (sometimes abbr.) of the network, examples: Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg, RMV (recommended)
ref Reference The number of the line e.g. IR 3114 (recommended)
operator operator Name of the company that operates the route e.g. Deutsche Bahn AG, Connex, Interconnex etc. (optional)
passenger international / national / regional / suburban / urban / local Indicate the type of passenger service on the route (often based upon length and stop frequency) (optional)
from Departure station Departure station (optional)
to Destination station Destination station (optional)
via Intermediate station Intermediate station to distinguish between similar routes (optional)
wheelchair yes / no / limited If the trains on the route are equipped with ramps or elevators for wheelchairs. Note that even if the trains are that the not all stations on the route may be suitable, or not all platforms may be accessible (optional)
duration time from start to end The amount of time from the first to last stop of the subway route. Use HHːMMːSS, HːMMːSS, HHːMM, HːMM, MM, or M format. (optional)
interval time between arrivals The time between arrivals at any given station along the route, also known as the "service frequency". Use HHːMMːSS, HːMMːSS, HHːMM, HːMM, MM, or M format. (optional)
colour ex: red / #FFEEDD If the railway route has an "official" colour, for example metro lines in some cities. (optional)
bicycle yes / no / limited Indicates if bicycles can be taken. (optional)
booking yes / required Indicates if reserving a seat/berth possible or compulsory. (optional)
by_night yes / no / only Indicates if the service runs during day and/or nighttime. (optional)
couchette yes Indicates if the service runs with cars meant for sleeping during the night. (optional)
sleeping_car yes Indicates if the service runs with cars meant for sleeping during the night. (optional)

Route relations can also be used to designate railway lines that are operated by one or more train operators. Some examples can be found at Open Rail Map/NL.

Rail Renderers

Main article: Railways section 'Rendering'

Railway infrastructure is slightly rendered (tracks, stations) by Standard (Carto) rendering. Data in route=train relations regarding passenger service is not. There exist some renderers, tools and websites to display such data.

United States 293,564 2014 WikiProject United States railways [2] Most US rail was entered from OSM-US' 2007 TIGER import. These data were rough, with no usage=* tags and incorrect name=* tags (TIGER name=* tags should be operator=* and name=* should contain "Subdivision" or "Line" name). These data improve with better name=* and usage=* tags, though there remains much work to do. Continuing efforts include collection of better-tagged rail elements into route=railway and route=train relations. Amtrak, passenger=national rail, is >98% done. Our Wiki offers guidelines to improve TIGER data, largely organizing at the state level. A 5-minute Lightning Talk was presented at SOTM-US 2016 here (at 25:30 - 30:30). Map Your Train Ride!
