hello, where can I find the data for railway lines in data I exported from osm using the overpass API ? I have the layers "multilinestrings", "lines" , "points" and "multipolygons" but I can't seem to find any attributes that would tell me anything about railways. I thought they would be in the lines layer. Do I need to download extra railway data with the same bounding box or am I just overlooking something ?

What software are you using that doesn't sound like the OSM data structure. OSM doesn't really have layers.

I'm using QGis to turn the data into different layers

nevermind, i found it, it's in the other_tags column in the lines layer (after layer export with QGis)
