Warn about floating railway switches and crossings

Reported by: Famlam Owned by: team

Component: Core validator Version:
Keywords: railway switch railway_crossing Cc:


Crossings of two railways (railway=railway_crossing) and railway switches (railway=switch) by definition cannot exist as isolated nodes without any "underlying" (former) (rail)way that they're part of. Likely they're forgotten remains of now-deleted railways. Especially railway=switch seems pretty common to be remaining (already 130 in NL+BE+DE only); a 'floating' railway=railway_crossing is relatively rare (6 in NL+BE+DE)


switch: (ex:, (both isolated nodes next to a real switch))

railway_crossing: (ex: )

Hence I would propose to add the following to


as part of the existing rule isolated node which must be connected to a way
