Hi Diego, thanks for improving the subway! The validator has been updated this morning, and it shows a few errors. Mostly they result from renaming railway=station to railway=stop. Metro stations are usually mapped with staiton or halt. For stop positions, you need to add public_transport=stop_position with subway=yes, and join the node with a station object using a stop_area relation. Please see this page for a complete schema. Disregard the “Rejected” plate, it does not make anything untrue.

Thanks for the clarification. I re-positioned the areas as “station” and the nodes as “stop”. I will remove this nodes “subway=station” and replace “public_transport=stop_position” with “subway=yes”. I hope that the other users of the group can collaborate.
