Description from railway=*:
Tracks within railway company operated railway yards.
Description from service=*:
This tag is used for the tracks at yard stations which are operated by the railway company itself (in difference to spur tracks).
Some yards have visible index numbers/letters to allow workers to easily identify lines (some yards have dozens of parallel lines, very close together. making this indexing important)
A line within the yard should selected as the "main route", and the service tag should not be applied to it. This is to allow renderers to show the track at a higher zoom, and so that yards which are connected to a main line at both ends may be rendered unbroken.
