Rail graphics 3.1

Objective: Develop common mark to identify railroad and rail stations on the SL map.

I have not been able to find any recognizable graphic for rail lines. Textures aren't captured on the SL map, so all we have to work with is color and prim shape.

I have found what I think is a good graphic to mark train statons. It is derived (thanks to Zimmy Zuhal) from the symbol on the Monopoly card. I made one and tested it on Thinkerer Quests. It is small, but clearly recognizable on the map (I think). Only 6 prims. To use it, you could put it on the roof or put it out of the way at 200 meters. I have sent one to Paddy for testing.
