What color are the Plasticville Turnpike toll booths supposed to be?
Are they green or blue? Is blue the new color?
I have the new E Z Streets set with a blue toll booth, and bought a Plasticville Turnpike set about a year ago with green toll booths, both had sealed plastic bags that the turnpike booths came in.

Lee,

The on line store is showing blue with the EZ-Streets set, green as a stand alone kit, just as you described. Maybe it's a marketing ploy of some sort.

Looking at pictures on line, it looks like the "prototype" uses either white, blue, green, tan, bare concrete, safety orange, yellow/black safety stripe, or a light pink for the booths themselves. The edge of the roof, as seen from the road, is generally either green, blue, white, black, aluminum, stainless steel, or grey.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

Could be a marketing ploy or to get you to buy another toll booth or set to match what you already have if you want a second one.

The booths themselves are plain blue or green, just one color. The roof is either gray or white and again it is one color for the whole roof area.

The toll booths here on the Florida turnpike are stainless steel or silver looking in color with an air conditioning unit mounted on the roof. Sometimes four to six lanes wide, occasionally 16 lanes at places like; Lantana, Three Lakes, and the main liner(Ft. Lee?) between Three Lakes and I-75.
The supervisor buildings and/or counting room buildings are plain cement block with windows and a roof.
The parking areas differ from location to location on the FL turnpike.
