UP has trackage rights, unclear exactly where. Color harmony, in motion. Needs a fair bit of (OSM tagging) work. It is OK to tag both railway=abandoned and highway=cycleway if it is the case that an abandoned railway became a railtrail (for bicycle use, for example). Fort Collins has at least two MAX (highway=bus_guideway) ROWs, these emerge in rail wikis as "Transitways" sections. An initial example is that for Amtrak Cascades service in Washington state and Oregon, OSM's Amtrak wiki table and Mapzen's former transit-colours renderer (no longer functional) both display a closely matching shade of green, which in turn (by intention) better match livery of rolling stock found only on those tracks by that line and class of service.

The route_master column will eventually be fully populated with v2 relations as v1 routes upgrade to v2, the type=route_master column data acting as "entry point" into these Amtrak routes, the type=route column linking to "directional" child relations. A short, Bond - Dotsero - Glenwood Springs - New Castle - Rifle - Parachute - Palisade - Grand Junction, Boise City Subdivision (near Las Animas) - Lamar - Granada - Holly - Kansas Line and eastward, Almost completely un-reviewed with respect to TIGER tags, Denver - Castle Rock - Palmer Lake - Gap - Colorado Springs - Gap - Fountain - Pueblo, More than halfway TIGER-reviewed, still needs a lot of work, Segments are confused in naming, sharing BNSF and UP. Known destinations/stations and current online/printed schedules are useful sources as passenger rail routes and platform locations develop in OSM. Vrain Alignment north of Denver. South off the end of SLRG's Alamosa-Antonio spur. There is a High Tonnage Loop, Impact Track, Precision Test Track, Railroad Test Track, Transit Test Track, Train Dynamics Track and Wheel Rail Mechanism track.

Distinguish Mainline, Branch and Industrial Rail by assigning usage=* tags on infrastructure members of route=railway (Subdivision) relations. At closer zooms, OPTM also displays route=light_rail, route=subway, route=tram, route=monorail, route=funicular, route=bus, route=trolleybus, route=aerialway and route=ferry with colors similar to ORM. This first table contains route=railway relations. Needs double checking as to latest ownership and usage tagging; rough. If you can, please update with better data/tagging and make table entries in this section with either OT query results, the following text-based suggestions, or both. GWR operates 80+ miles (~130 km) of track, interchanging with BNSF in Fort Collins, Loveland and Longmont and with UP in Greeley. State by state, OSM better completes USA Rail!

UP has trackage rights, unclear exactly where. Color harmony, in motion. Needs a fair bit of (OSM tagging) work. It is OK to tag both railway=abandoned and highway=cycleway if it is the case that an abandoned railway became a railtrail (for bicycle use, for example). Fort Collins has at least two MAX (highway=bus_guideway) ROWs, these emerge in rail wikis as "Transitways" sections. An initial example is that for Amtrak Cascades service in Washington state and Oregon, OSM's Amtrak wiki table and Mapzen's former transit-colours renderer (no longer functional) both display a closely matching shade of green, which in turn (by intention) better match livery of rolling stock found only on those tracks by that line and class of service.

The Colorado State Map points out several towns that are connected by the well-laid railway tracks of the state. Yes, there is much red- and yellow-status TIGER Review to do on railway infrastructure. Difficult to determine whether this is disused or abandoned (some aerial photos show railcars, storage?) From Metro North's proposed northward extension terminus at St. Vrain to the Fort Collins Subdivision and La Salle Branch wye at Milliken. Sugar Junction (east of Monte Vista) - Center, Trackage rights on Green River Subdivision, Should we make a separate relation for the Colorado portion of this, with elements tagged, Needs minor work; yard line, some touchup, maybe final tagging, Might be a private railroad, might be a UP or DRIR industrial spur, not known. However, there should never be a jump to level 4. r=4 should only appear after r=3, and the same with h=3 & h=4, as this implies the relation has been checked by both the editor who completed it (level 3), and a second editor (level 4).

Virtually nothing is known about this line; please add data here or tags in OSM if you know them. rail that might go into this section. The FRA GIS site noted above is considered by rail professionals to be "authoritative" (and because the data are federal, are in the public domain, so OSM can use them), though it can be slow to load, even on a fast 'net connection: zoom in close for better performance. Given these are different people, a jump up to level 4 from anything other than 3 is not possible. TIGER review is an early priority (do first or now), and tiger_reviewed=no tag should be deleted now when true or superseded by newer, better data. Colorado Public Radio - CDOT Is Close To Buying An Old Train … Is a better name known? That's OK for now (especially as route=light_rail relations can "stand on their own" as public_transport v1 routes). Try this OT query, which currently returns limited results of (possibly disused or abandoned) military rail. There are a LOT of industrial spurs south of this branch; please review them and better tag them if needed. K&O operates 820 miles on these 11 lines, another 84 miles is accounted for in trackage rights, perhaps these enter as a table in a Kansas/Railroads wiki?

Important tasks now are TIGER Review and completing correct route=railway relations as documented in United_States/Railways. Scattered tracks around Denver Union Stockyard. UP has trackage rights, unclear exactly where. Color harmony, in motion. Needs a fair bit of (OSM tagging) work. It is OK to tag both railway=abandoned and highway=cycleway if it is the case that an abandoned railway became a railtrail (for bicycle use, for example). Fort Collins has at least two MAX (highway=bus_guideway) ROWs, these emerge in rail wikis as "Transitways" sections. An initial example is that for Amtrak Cascades service in Washington state and Oregon, OSM's Amtrak wiki table and Mapzen's former transit-colours renderer (no longer functional) both display a closely matching shade of green, which in turn (by intention) better match livery of rolling stock found only on those tracks by that line and class of service.

A helpful, less-confusing methodology is "infrastructure first," then build passenger train route relations to correct v1, finally completing to v2. More-local volunteers, step right up, please. The Colorado State Map points out several towns that are connected by the well-laid railway tracks of the state. Yes, there is much red- and yellow-status TIGER Review to do on railway infrastructure. Difficult to determine whether this is disused or abandoned (some aerial photos show railcars, storage?) From Metro North's proposed northward extension terminus at St. Vrain to the Fort Collins Subdivision and La Salle Branch wye at Milliken. Sugar Junction (east of Monte Vista) - Center, Trackage rights on Green River Subdivision, Should we make a separate relation for the Colorado portion of this, with elements tagged, Needs minor work; yard line, some touchup, maybe final tagging, Might be a private railroad, might be a UP or DRIR industrial spur, not known. However, there should never be a jump to level 4. r=4 should only appear after r=3, and the same with h=3 & h=4, as this implies the relation has been checked by both the editor who completed it (level 3), and a second editor (level 4). While JBC isn't believed to be a common carrier, switching railroad, or known whether it offers rail car storage, it is unclear how to enter into OSM and/or this wiki.

The route_master column will eventually be fully populated with v2 relations as v1 routes upgrade to v2, the type=route_master column data acting as "entry point" into these Amtrak routes, the type=route column linking to "directional" child relations. A short, Bond - Dotsero - Glenwood Springs - New Castle - Rifle - Parachute - Palisade - Grand Junction, Boise City Subdivision (near Las Animas) - Lamar - Granada - Holly - Kansas Line and eastward, Almost completely un-reviewed with respect to TIGER tags, Denver - Castle Rock - Palmer Lake - Gap - Colorado Springs - Gap - Fountain - Pueblo, More than halfway TIGER-reviewed, still needs a lot of work, Segments are confused in naming, sharing BNSF and UP. Known destinations/stations and current online/printed schedules are useful sources as passenger rail routes and platform locations develop in OSM. Vrain Alignment north of Denver. South off the end of SLRG's Alamosa-Antonio spur. There is a High Tonnage Loop, Impact Track, Precision Test Track, Railroad Test Track, Transit Test Track, Train Dynamics Track and Wheel Rail Mechanism track.

At closer zooms, OPTM also displays route=light_rail, route=subway, route=tram, route=monorail, route=funicular, route=bus, route=trolleybus, route=aerialway and route=ferry with colors similar to ORM. This first table contains route=railway relations. Needs double checking as to latest ownership and usage tagging; rough. If you can, please update with better data/tagging and make table entries in this section with either OT query results, the following text-based suggestions, or both. GWR operates 80+ miles (~130 km) of track, interchanging with BNSF in Fort Collins, Loveland and Longmont and with UP in Greeley. State by state, OSM better completes USA Rail!
