Status: in use

service=spur is used in association with railway=rail to identify a relatively short lengths of track, built to give one company or entity access to the main line, normally for freight traffic only. For example a coal-fired power station, a coal mine, a timber-mill or cement works.

This tag should not be used for services which provide passenger services, even if the line takes the form of a spur.

How to map

Add a service=spur to the way for the railway lines. Consider also tagging with usage=industrial and operator=*. Do not use this tag with lines that carry passenger traffic.
