I think this probably ties in with the transit discussion as well. It
is possible to put the location in an hCalendar via a geo or adr. Then
there would be an event for all of the stations on a train's route.
Linking these hCalendars together to give the "line" which can be
imported into iCal, or drawn as a polyline on a Map.
