That sounds a lot like NB, continuous. Last time out we tried Highway 1 through Maine just to avoid the hills on the way back. Nice trip, really got a kick out of the Solar System done to scale along the highway.

The Maine Solar System Model

They claim to be the largest 3D to scale model in the world @ 1:93,000,000.
Distance from Pluto to the Sun is 40 miles (64.4 km)
Get this, the earth is 5.5 inches in diameter, made from a styrofoam ball covered in Fiberglass.

Wikipedia says Sweden's is bigger - scale of 1:20,000,000.
Distance from Pluto to the Sun is 300 km.
Earth is ~ 25.6 inches in diameter
