I am noticing the abandoned railroads are disappearing from the map. even new ones i added. what gives? It's bad enough they took the railroad names away from us last January. I use OSM strictly because of the detailed railroad lines vs other maps that don't show details.

Most of the answers to your previous question apply here too, I think. For a web-based map, OpenRailwayMap is probably the best option - is there something that you'd like it to show that it doesn't?

thanks for the response, while i have been using Open Railroad Maps for a few months i still would like to use US Tropo Maps since i bought that app for my phone for downloading maps for offline viewing. ORM is a layer over a map. the offline downloaders download the regular OSM map so i don't get the benefits for ORM. I hate that after i bought the app i can't use it for what i intended. does this make since? I also use GMcatcher for the pc and it only does the regular map as well. no options for ORM. i can use the downloaders for open cycle map etc but not the map of my interest.

Sorry, but we are not responsible for any third-party apps. And especially not for commercial ones. Please contact their official support and maybe they decide to include other layers / styles.

A bit out of line maybe but why has this discussion been on Github and not OSM ?

Because the rendering stylesheet is hosted at GitHub.

thanks for the info. what page or site has all the latest changes or proposed changes for OSM? I never can find anything.
