Strategy First Inc is pleased to announce that it will be publishing Microsoft Train® Simulator's Regional Add-On Pack (USA and Canada), developed by Auran in January 2002.

Fans of Train Simulator will enjoy hours of additional gameplay! PC Chip Magazine confirms that "it's an excellent addition to your MS ® Train Simulator xperience."

The Add-On features 20 classic locomotives, used in the US and Canada, and a brand new cab interior. The 20 new locomotives have been built from the ground up and contain incredible detail that surpasses anything seen in the original.

The Auran development team is also currently working on their own train simulator called TRAINZ ( Some are saying it is one of the most exciting new model railroad applications to come out for the PC! It allows players to build their own virtual model railroad, with lavish environments and a vast array of locomotives. To further the experience, players can even grab the controls and ride the rails!

For more information on either the MSTS® Add-On or TRAINZ, log onto or MSTS® Add-On will be available in retail stores nationwide on January 15th 2002.
