Why are these nodes in CS?

I recently found some nodes in my city that are part of an abondoned railtrack and I wonder why they would make their way into CS, because there is no street/road/track whatsoever.

They are part of a longer way, which has a name, but is not tagged as highway. So they should not be fetched by the query. The whole way has many more nodes, that do not show up in CS. So why do these four do? The way itself was changed in OSM a month ago (after the last update from OSM to CS), but these nodes where not part of that change. Only the location of other nodes were changed.

Anyone an idea, why they are here?

I had made a short post about CS and OSM. But after reading your post again, it sounds like you have a good understanding of OSM and CS… So I deleted it.

There are others here with a better understanding of the CS/OSM relationship, so I will defer to them. :slight_smile:

Happy New Year,

Well, I have some basic knowledge, because I am trying to correct wrong/inomplete data in osm. But with this one I don’t know if there is an error and if yes, what it is… So I guess, I need someone more knowledable in osm …

Actually, I have even more “weird” errors, ways, that are tagged as highway=track and still show up in CS (no changes in years in osm)… can’t figure it out…
