^I can agree with that and that is a million dollar question. I am very curious about what happens outside of the Texas Triangle. But East of I-35, Marked
, I am quite sure they are marked. Pink
, possibly scenic. If its not colored, I have no idea. It could go scenic or non existent.
I'm pretty confident in Lufkin being marked with Nacogdoches being scenic. Any important non-retail industry in Nacogdoches could just be marked as Lufkin.
Galveston could be scenic if the only industry they'll include there is the Port of Galveston, but if they also include all the oil refineries in Texas City then I think Galveston should be fine as marked.
Small east Texas towns with not much to them like Jasper, Athens, Greenville, and Palestine should just be scenic and nothing more.
Mt. Pleasant actually could be one of those small towns that gets marked though. There seems to be quite a bit of industry there like Priefert Manufacturing, as well as this plant: https://email@example.com ... 312!8i6656
I have my doubts with Corsicana, but they seem to have a bit of industry there too, more so than I imagined. I don't see Collin Street Bakery making it in as an industry though (unfortunately). On the other hand though, Huntsville's basically just a college and prison town, with not much else outside of that besides usual retail suspects. Just add the Sam Houston statue and maybe a prison off the side of I-45 and we'll be good to go.
I still think Bryan will make it in. There's still quite a bit of industry there outside of the retail and college stuff (especially Sanderson Farms). Just make Bryan a mid-sized (maybe like Pocatello) marked city with College Station and A&M all being scenic. Plus it works if you wanna take TX-6 as a direct route from Houston to Waco. That said, who knows which of B/CS they'll make scenic or marked. I'd rather Bryan be marked with College Station as scenic, but it's possible they do it the other way around since College Station seems to be more well known and has a larger population (117K compared to Bryan's 86K).
I think Paris should be marked. Campbell Soups and Kimberly-Clark are both located there, plus a power plant and what looks like a steel fabricator plant (the latter of which was under construction in the latest Google Maps satellite image of the city), among other smaller industries. If it can't be included, then at least include the Eiffel Tower replica with the cowboy hat, even if it doesn't go in its correct location which unfortunately isn't along any major highways.
Those are just my thoughts though.
