Depends on your definition of "soon". No, it's not gonna be this month, but I wouldn't stretch it as far as "Waze soon" either. I would expect it within a few months, which is certainly soon enough to delete railroad-notes you might find, especially in areas that might not be as routinely edited.

As soon as it will happen, we will ask for a complete removal of all railroads.
Or we ask for a rule in the validator and remove them manualy in a few hours ;-)

In the UK we've got loads of real railways.

As per Shirlig's first message in this thread, railroads used as notes are to be deleted (by us).

I've added hundreds, if not thousands of miles of railroads (not notes, but actual railroads), so trust we will not be asking railroad segments be deleted in preparation for their eventual return to the client.

...and none used for notes*. Can we have them displayed in our clients already, while the rest of the world sorts themselves out? #impatient

Like I said, use as notes is not the reason for "delay". A big change to the client map display is upcoming, but when it happens, it's going to happen all at once.

Railroads are already displayed in the Live Map, as are Runway/Taxiways.

Well, it was THE reason for the delay.

Noam said that 'Next week' the railroads would be displayed.
Then 'everyone' complained a lot and said they didn't want it, because they wanted a notes function in the editor first.
Then Noam said, okey, we will not make railroads visible in the next update.

Long story, short: We do not know when.
