Hi, on the key a small blue square indicates a railway station, however on the map of where I live (Hucknall, Notts) they appear to have been used to mark bus stops. Should the description on the key be changed?

Regards Guy

I think the main online map legend could be improved. The small blue square is used for both, railway station and bus stops but the "map key" only indicates the railway station. The text and image of the site map keys seems to be configured in this file:

Anyone who can access this file could improve the section:
  station: "Railway station"
  station: "Railway,bus station"

for instance.

If the symbol is not exactly the same, then a new entry could be added in the map key table (I guess it is in the file and its name (e.g. bus_station) added as well in the internationalisation file referenced above (config/locales/en.yml).

They are not exactly the same icon. The railway station symbol seems to be a darker grey/blue colour. Plus the railway station is a bit larger. Though yes, the map key could be clearer.
