Steve and Barb Hile

We had sidewalk chalk for our kids (and now for our grandkids) that was soft and about an inch in diameter.  Likely the same or similar stuff.

The chalk was a 1” stick, so the markings could be seen at a distance. Railroad chalk is still sold and used in a number of commercial applications.
