Re the fixmes of "Should be rechecked whether service=yard or service=siding" here, how would I tell as someone walking past what should be tagged as what?
Oh, it is complicated... This is a categorization which always exists (at least on paper) - service=yard - only shunting is allowed, service=siding (regular) train running movement is allowed as well.
It is unfortunately not always definitely visible in nature.
main signals or distant signals beside the track -> service=siding
any equipment of a train protection/warning system (in UK AWS/TPWS/ETCS) -> service=siding
derailer on the track -> service=yard
Have you thought of asking the people at http://www.peakrail.co.uk/ ? They should know which bits are "theirs" and which bits Railtrack's.
Logically I presume that http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/359980269 only exists to stop anything from Peak Rail getting onto the Railtrack section. Since Peak Rail is still all semaphore signalled, I'd be surprised if there was any sort of train protection system in place on it anywhere.
