Has anybody else noticed that with the right paint some of the smaller support scraps would make perfect construction cones?  :|

Well now, I can finally model Colorado Springs and I-25 to Denver.  I’ll just need Avogadro’s Number worth in HO scale.   :facepalm:

This is going to be a boon for modelers of Michigan locales too.  Might need to wait until they are available injection molded in packages of 1000.  Or maybe by the pound....

I could use some here in PA, but our "official" state flower is the pylon style markers.

OMG!  That's a hoot!  I wonder if it causes more accidents as people stare at it and burst out laughing instead of paying attention to what's in front of them!  :)

Believe it or not, there were meetings to that effect, "...but won't this be a distraction?" It was the District boss's idea, so he prevailed.

Ah, the top of the food chain, regardless of rational or irrational decisions, always wins.
