I've added those to the TODO list.  I'll have to see if I can find example
images for most of them, and the Oregon Outback Route's image may prove to
be too much for my meager artistic ability.  (I've mostly been working off
of public domain images from Wikipedia.)

Ah, okay.  I'll set them up just like other
named-but-not-publically-numbered routes like the New Jersey Turnpike and
look for network US:OK, no ref, and whetever their name is.

As NE2 said, FM and RM differ in the text on the image, though the
rendered shields are too small to be able to tell.  We do have US:TX:Toll
and US:TX:RE also.  PR is Park Road.

As I said, most of them don't render at the moment (aside from the US:TX
roads), but there are some ranch-to-market roads that show up, like here:

Ah.  It does.
