Description

There is a track near me which is often used as a cycle route although it is actually the route of a dismantled railway and is mostly loose earth or gravel. Currently I have tagged this with:

  • highway=unsurfaced
  • cycle=yes
  • foot=yes
  • horse=no
  • railway=abandoned
  • name=The Nickey Line
  • id=2734892

This combination of tags used to cause the track to get a distinctive colouring. Now at high zooms it looks like any of the nearby unclassified roads (plain white with black casing). Since it isn't a properly surfaced cycleway I don't want to tag as a proper cycleway, but I feel the track should appear distinctive on the map.

Feel free to suggest a different tagging if you feel appropriate.

The track in question is named 'The Nickey Line' at http://www.openstreetmap.org/index.html?lat=51.77973035895138&lon=-0.4243405124705194&zoom=15 The current mapnik layer shows the old rendering with yellow dashed line, but the latest osm.xml has rules for highway=unsurfaced making it look like highway=unclassified.

Other web references describing this route and including a photo or two are at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicky_Line http://enquire.hertscc.gov.uk/cms/explore/walk/nickyline.htm
