+1, I don't understand why it is not the same (plus some emergency
information). It is more guidepost than trailblaze I'd say (add some
subtag to distinguish it from other guideposts, e.g. a tag about the
shape). It might also be a highway=milestone as someone suggested
(hard to judge if you don't understand the stuff written on it).
