All Aboard! presents the newest route available. Canton, by Rich Garber, is a fifteen to seventeen mile branchline route with lots of action for mainline running and switching. Canton, based on the Georgia Woodlands RR, is enhanced to include 18 industries, 5 towns, 6 passenger depots, and over 250+ scenery objects. And all the scenery is built to scale! Additional features include a marvelous and real looking track texture by Tim Court. Select autumn or winter, and enjoy a whole new look to Canton thanks to seasonal textures. To see Canton is like you've never seen a route before because all the textures are photorealistic. Comments already for Canton include 'wow' and 'I had to stop and examine all the detail' to much more. And if ease of installation is a worry, no need to, thanks to the very easy installation routine you've seen on East Metro and Ohio Rail. To help you get acquainted with Canton is a 21 page colorful manual and schematics by Don Hughes. If this doesn't already create the makings of a great route, check out all the free third party additions already available.

 Available for Canton is two engine/rolling stock packages by Dick Cowen. Taking advantage of these two rolling stock packages are two activity packages giving you 21 activities with more to come. Henri Patey is poised to begin releasing his own activity packages too. And if you are looking for virtual operations, check out Canton's own virtual railroad done by Ohio Valley Systems and vNERR. On each virtual railroad is Canton forums where you can participate in Canton discussions.

At the recent PI Engineering Open House, Tim Court demonstrated the abilities of MSTS1 in which one of the routes featured was Canton. Tim tells me that a couple of people asked if the route being demonstrated was from MSTS2!

Canton is now available currently at an introductory price at $11 for downloading and $16 for CD; mailed anywhere. Please join us at Canton and experience the difference!
