In the case of an area, how does this tag handle the case of two faces of a platform having different ref=* values, e.g. a island platform which is ref=3 on one face and ref=4 on the other? Chriscf 13:53, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

  • IMO there should be only one area or one way for each platform. It does not make sense to split one platform, which is physically one way, into two ways or two areas. In countries where platforms get numbers (e.g. Czech Republic) ref should refer to the number of the platform (e.g. ref=2), in countries where tracks get numbers (e.g. Germany) it should refer to the number of the track(s) (e.g. ref=2/3).

    • Agree with you, but instead of ref=1/2 ref=1;2 should be used as this form complies with the general XML syntax. Aikon 15:43, 14 October 2008 (UTC)
