thanks for the in-depth explanation. Switching off the background map makes it
a lot clearer. Now there are only the annotations, bridges, and some
differently tagged tracks around train stations ;-)
Large parts of the network of the "Harzer Schmalspur Bahnen" seems to be
tagged as "Schmalspur". Only the Brockenbahn and the tracks between
Wernigerode and Elend are not "Schmalspur"
Will have a look again at the openrailwaymap in a few days to see how the
tourism tracks look like.

the main tracks of the "Brockenbahn" and the "Harzquerbahn" are
with usage=tourism (btw. usage=tourism is not 100% correct for the
Harzquerbahn as this line is also used for regular public transport).
Currently the renderer does not show tracks that are tagged with
usage=tourism. There is a ticket for it
), but we have
not found a suitable color for these lines. I think as a first step, we will
render those lines in black in the next few days.
For your information: The main tracks are not rendered as crossover
tracks ("Überleitgleis"), they are not rendered on the overlay. It
appears that they are rendered as crossover tracks because of their
rendering in the basemap . Select "No background map" in the layer
selection to see this.
