Including a route diagram

A Route diagram (based on template )) can be included via |map=. It can be composed right in this template (see first example), or it can be a complete template like |map={{Needham Line}} (second example).

Note that parameter |inline= must be set to a non-empty value, like {{BS-map|inline=yes}}.
