Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Good day!

Is there is some options for heavy highlighting of subject objects (specifically in Moscow) or insert some icon (png, svg, special font symbol, whatever) no top of them?

This is important, because in big megapolis sometimes extremely important to find public transport stations, and especially metro. Today often there is even no tiny icon but only name of station (without notice that it's name of station) in place where is three separate entrances, each far from each other (example is metro station ru: Маяковская, en:Mayakovskaya). And absolutely unusable the impossibility to look at map at large scale and find out where is any single station.

Thank you!

Does the transport layer work better there? On the main osm.org screen, select the "stack of books" icon and then select "Transport".

Yes! That's much better, thank you! But in large scale still not perfect.
