Please, write about the differences between railway=halt and Tag:railway=tram_stop. -- Akavel 22:27, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

As far as I see, Tag:railway=halt is considered for train stopping points (German: Haltepunkt) that are no station. Maybe the description should be altered to reflect this and tram should be replaced by rail in the first occurence. -- Quelbs 15:41, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
I think the difference can be seen at Key:railway. So the description should be updated instead of merging with Tag:railway=tram_stop to be consistent with the description on Key:railway where the difference can be seen. -- Quelbs 19:58, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Where is the difference ? It's the same meaning. The only difference is the railway itself tagged railway=rail for trains and railway=tram for trams. And we could use the same tag for the halt nodes. -- Pieren 11:03, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
The difference is that different vehicles are stopping at these points. I know there are shared uses of rails for tram and train (Karlsruhe model). In this cases it could be useful to be able to differentiate between Tag:railway=tram_stop and Tag:railway=halt. The description "A small station, may not have a platform, trains may only stop on request." of a Tag:railway=halt would also not fit to a tram stop. -- Quelbs 15:18, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
In case of shared halts, the difference is done by the way on which the node is attached. So I still expect a good argument for two different tags for the same thing. If the definition in Tag:railway=halt is the problem, then we can simply revert the last edits and comeback to the original definition which covered both cases. -- Pieren 15:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)


Difference between halt and station

According to the wiki, the difference is "It's not a station because it has no switches." This should be clarified to mean that there is no crossover facility for trains at a halt. It might also be worth mentioning that most subway stations are actually halts --Planemad/Talk 06:43, 11 March 2016 (UTC)
