I think that's pretty decent. In general a bit detailed for the majority of editors, but I think a fine start to discuss. Should be posted in the wiki discussion forum because it will become part of the wiki.

Here are our guidelines for UK Railways - we opted to keep it simple so editors could concentrate on the roads.

Just informed about this thread...

I plan to write for wiki publication a section on how to draw and name railroads, subject to review. I've been a proponent for railroads being returned to the client and am quite pleased with the announcement.

Before Waze took over my life, I was (and still am) a pro-amateur railroad photographer/videographer and have been since 1972. I ran a sole-proprietorship railroad video business for a few years, but taxes and government regulations stole my joy.

The scope will be for a North American audience because that is what I know. I hope to have something for review in a couple of weeks and will announce here, in this thread, when the draft is ready.

Not ideal long term, but will do until Waze provide a dedicated notes interface.


Can you tell me how URs can be posted from the Livemap? Thanks.

On the live map, click on a spot. You get the balloon with Start point, destination, and report a problem. With the report a problem, click on it and you get a way to drop a UR to the update map.

I would never forget the Lahaina train, having ridden on it when I was (much) younger! I did say "most of them." (Funny, the Oahu Railway tourist train looks even more toy-like than that!) ;-)

Woah Nellie. ;) Let's not forget the "Sugar Cane Train" in Lahaina. :lol:
